Coffee and Flowers what could be better?

How brilliant is this? The flowers are from the Simply Said Set and they are being used like steam from the coffee cup in the Pun Fun set! Too cute. This card is actually created for the Featured Stampers challenge on SCS. Here is the card that inspired me. I loved her idea with the flowers coming up from the cup. The only other thing I kept from her card was the strip in the middle with the scallop border. I love how this turned out. The colors are super! I used the East Coast Prep designer papers and the coordinating colors of card stock -- Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Wild Wasabi and Real Red. The coffee cup has been clear embossed to make it look more like a real cup. And the half pearls are added to the flowers on the bottom that have been cut with the BoHo Blossoms flower punch. I finished it all off with the wide Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
