Warm Java Valentine

Only a couple more Valentine projects from me. In my next post I will show the remaining things that Eli and I made for a gift and for his classmates. But for now, this is a card for his teacher with a little java gift inside. I used Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #73 for the layout.
I knew I wanted to use the coffee mug and saying from Pun Fun since I was going to give her a small gift card. So I stamped the mug twice in Bravo Burgundy ink and pulled out my Stampin' Pastels (which I feel have been very neglected lately) to color the image. I loved how it turned soft and a wonderful cup of coffee!
The pretty satin pink ribbon was some scraps that I had, so I am not sure where it is from...same with the button. The button was probably one of those extra buttons that sometimes come with shirts and pants. I tied the button to the ribbon with some hemp twine...a lovely addition if I do say so myself.
I did decorate the inside so that it could hold the gift card I got her. I just added the bottom panels and stuck 'em on with some sticky strip tape on 3 sides so that the gift card could be placed in there.
Anyway that is all for now...I am off to figure out our new AT&T U-verse service that just got installed. Excited for the DVR capabilities, but I hate that I have to learn all new channels!
