Thanks a Latte!

Good Monday Morning Everyone! Today marks the beginning of another great challenge over at Paper Therapy. With Thanksgiving near, this weeks challenge is to make a Thank You card or a LO of something you are thankful for. Here is what I came up with for the challenge:

I think this card would be perfect to add a gift card inside to the recipients favorite coffee place. I used Smiley Cards for my tea cup cut at 2". I just left off the top layer that has the actual smiley face on it. I used some glossy accents on the patterned paper to give the look of porcelain. The "steam" is actually a flourish that was turned upside down, stamped and then embossed. The sentiment was actually typed on the computer and then just printed onto my card stock. I had so much fun making this card. Would love to see what you create for the challenge. Come on over to Paper Therapy and check us out. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and take a look. I really do appreciate it. I hope you have a great day!
