Live, Laugh, Love

Yay!  It's Friday!  Ready for the weekend!!
I started this card late last night but it got too late and I had to stop.  It's pretty simple, so it was easy to finish up quickly today.
I just love how this card turned out!  The ribbon through the punch border has got to be my absolute favorite!  I saw something like that on another blog but I can't remember what blog it was...
It was definitely fun stringing the ribbon through the punch and seeing it come together!  I've learned I need to work on my bows though...can't ever seem to get them to look good...
The sentiment is a free digi stamp from Bits N Bobs.  This quote seems to be very popular now days!
I followed the sketch Try Stampin' on Tuesdays has for their challenge this week.  It's a very simple sketch and I wanted to keep it that way even though I longed to add more details to this card!
The frame around the sentiment is cut from my Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge (of course! :) )  I embossed the white part of the frame with an Art Deco folder.  I've had those folders for quite awhile and haven't really ever used them!  And they are so cool!  I'll have to try to pull them out more often!
