Thank you card featuring a glazed cup of coffee, a reused layered focal element and a little greeting punchie

For this card I started with a background which was set aside after a session of refurbishing cards.  I am not sure what or if there had been a focal element but I found this little coffee cup (stamped image) which fit perfectly so I watercoloured it and mounted it over the scalloped square.  I had to trim the background to fit on an A2 card but fortunately I was able to carefully trimmed the decorative paper after I cut it to size using my exacto knife so I could replicate the bordering frame.  I mounted this large element to a yellow card front and added the little punchie greeting using 3D foam tape.  Lastly, I embellished the coffee cup image with clear dimensional paint and left it to dry which took the better part of the day.  It looks wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!              Therese
