Happiness Always

I really like red. It is such a vibrant color, and I love to wear it. It makes me feel more alive.
Today's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge is all about red today. Here is what I came up with:


Fairly simple and quick - and with one of my favorite retired Stampin' Up! sets: Happy Harmony.

I had planned to use a whole different set today, but the red just wasn't working with it, so I pulled out a favorite. What do you think?

Stamps: Happy Harmony (SU!)
Paper: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, SU! DP
Ink: Real Red, Old Olive
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF, organdy ribbon, grosgrain ribbon, red gems, Nestabilities, EK Success Scalloped Scallop border punch, paper piercer

I think it's grrrrrrr-reat! Love all the textures and interest provided by the ribbon, and the piercing, and the scalloped border. Bravo!
