Road to Happiness

I needed some quick inspiration for a wedding card, so I went to my Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog and took the design posted in the book for the Road to Happiness Stamp Set to make my card. 
My card base is Basic Gray Card Stock with a layer of Basic Gray Designer Paper from the Neutral Paper Stack.  I cut Bashful Blue Card Stock with the Paper Doily Sizzlit and layered it behind my stamped images.  For a pop of color I punched a piece of Riding Hood Red Card Stock with the Scallop Edge Border Punch and a Small Heart.  This layer was placed on using dimensionals.
I have been inspired to use a lot of the soon to be retiring colors in my latest cards.  Will certainly miss Bashful Blue and Riding Hood Red, but have to say I probably have not paired them together a lot.  Funny how that goes, when something is going to be retired, I start to use it a bit more. 
The following were used:
Card Stock:  Basic Gray #121044, Whisper White #100730, Bashful Blue #105120, Riding Hood Red #111348
Designer Series Paper:  Neutral Paper Stack #117157
Ink:  Island Indigo #126986
Stamp Set:  Road to Happiness #126545 w or #136547 c
Punches:  Scallop Edge Border #119882, Small Heart #117193
Tools:  Big Shot #113439, Paper Doily Sizzlits #125592
Adhesive:  Dimensionals #104430, Snail #104332
