Love Bandit and Occassional Quotes + Perfect Punches by Stampin up

Hi Stampers! Thanks for stopping by. I am so pumped up about this card I made the other day. The tools that Stampin' Up provides make it so easy! Everything looks so sharp and simple. And yes, I tried making cards without those punches, I would trace cups and what not to get the right size to use in my card.. But it never looked good enough, at least for me. On top of that I am somewhat a perfectionist, so I would always be frustrated with the result, because something wasn't the way I really wanted it and it took me way to much time.. My friend Diana can agree with that one :) We've been there right?!

Anyway. I needed some Birthday cards this week.. Actually a whole lot.. I have been working on 6 different ones in the last week. I will be posting them soon. This one I made with Stampin up's Love Bandit. So glad I got it while I could buy it. It is now retired, sorry about that one! I used the 'Only Orange', 'Marina Mist' and the 'Basic Grey' card stock. I used the larger size Oval punch to punch out the .. yes :) ovals..
From the New 'Occasional Quotes' I used one of the sayings. This Hostess set has 12 !!! different stamps. Many of them are so .. well.. 'Profound'.. Love that.. I am not that sassy.. I think.. I need some realness in a card. I also used one of the stamps of 'Perfect Punches' They all work so well together.

All that to say.. Here it is. I hope you'll like it
