Whisper White and Only Orange (SU) were the colors of paper used to make this card along with Only Orange ink. The stamp is from the "Tart and Tangy" set also from Stampin' UP!
A scallop punch and corner rounder was used, along with a popsicle stick that I was lucky enough to get from my neice so I didn't have to buy an entire bag of them. (Thanks Kelly!)
Inside the card I put in a white insert and simply stamped "Happy Summer" on it.

I have a little journal book that I use often but it had the ugliest cover on it! Every time I saw it I told myself that I needed to make a new cover for it. Well......I finally did and even laminated it so it would be protected in my pocketbook. I'm pretty happy with how it came out, and it looks sooooo much better than it did before! LOL
I used some heavy card stock designed by Brenda Walton at K&Company for my background, then cut two squares of Stampin' Up cardstock, More Mustard and Garden Green to use as layers. Black Stazon ink was used to stamp the image on to Whisper White card stock, then colored in using a blender and watercolor pencils. I added some small dragonfly stickers then added the words "Be Happy Every Day" with a stamp from Hero Arts.
The main image is from a Stampin' UP retired set called "All That's Nice".
