Thanks a latte!

Hello!  It's challenge day again at Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges and this week's theme is one everyone loves:
Anything Goes!
That's right, this is the week to really let your creative juices flow, because there are no rules!  As you may know, I've been working on building up certain parts of my card stash that get used the most.  So for me, this was a great week to make a card that had been "brewing" (get it?  haha) in my head ever since I got Love you a Latte for Christmas.  My very favorite image off of that cartridge is this coffee cup, hands down.  So I started there.  I originally cut it too small, and then upped the size a little and pieced it together.  It turned out to be good that I had the smaller cut on the top of my garbage, because the bigger steam from my actual cut didn't fit on the card, but the bigger steam from the smaller size subbed in just perfectly, 

Next, I found this awesome paper from Echo Park's "This and That" 6x6 stack and paired it with a cream card base.  I distressed the edges of the cream card with some Vintage Photo distress ink.   The ribbon is some that I had in my stash.  Then I hand cut this banner from the same cardstock as I used for the heart, inked the edges with the same ink, and stamped my sentiment using Jessie's ABCs by Lawn Fawn.
