I had fun using several fun, bright, summery colors for my card!

I pulled out a fun, summer themed Stampin' Up! rubber stamp to create my background.  A drew a few pencil lines, diagonally, to guide me in stamping that fun background.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I found a similar quote online, but it said "life" instead of summer.  I wasn't able to find the original source or credit of the quote.
The lid of the coffee cup was die cut, then coated with Glossy Accents.  My attempt to make it resemble a plastic lid.  It sort of does...don't you think???

I had fun with this summer themed card, even though it took me several days to make it.  It was just one of those weeks!
