Thanks a Latte

I was able to obtain a large number of free postcards with a turquoise and brown border.  They were the right size for cardmaking and I thought the colors would work well to go with some coffee themed stamps that I have.  I decided to crank out a large number of thank you cards to beef up my stash a little.  Since I was going to be making a large number of cards, I wanted a simple design.  I used the cup from Smiley Cards (hiding the face with my Gypsy) and added the steam from Graphically Speaking.  As soon as I had everything cut out, I immediately wished I had done the colors the other way around, making the cup turquoise and the saucer brown.  That way I could have stamped "Thanks a latte" on the cup.  I decided to just put both sentiments on the inside instead.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Jo's Scrap Shack--#44 Anything Goes
My Craft Spot--#131 Thank you card
