Stamp Scrap Doodle Saturday

Our challenge this week at Stamp, Scrap and Doodle is to make a thank you card. This digi image is by Kathy Martin. I got it a while back. It is suppose to have a flower on the cup but I want to play with my Photoshop Elements and see if I could put the sentiment on the cup and I could. That is the fun part about digi stamps you can change things around and they don't take up any room in your craft space.
My card got a little busy with all the embossing but I was having fun. 
I paper pieced the saucer and added some flowers that I punched and cut in half. The little hearts are suppose to be the steam. I colored the cup with Copic markers. I used the colors from Color Throwdown 109.  I was motivated to do the hearts after seeing this card by another one of my favorite card designers LeAnne. Her cards always wow me. 
The layout is from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 84
The "Thank you!" is a SU samp for the set called Pedaling past.
I liked the colors so much that I made two thank you cards.
Here is the other one.

I like this one better. It is not so busy. The embossing folder is called Bloom Dots. This is a SU set called Something Sweet. I have had this set for a while and this is the first time I used it. I think it is so sweet. The bow is hiding a finger smudge I made after I had it all stamped, distressed, cut out and ready to go. I wasn't going to have a bow on it. I was just happy I had ribbon in the right color.
Here is a picture of the liner. I got a new MS border punch called Ribbon Loop with my 50% off at Michael's over the weekend.
Both cards have that liner. It is so pretty. 

Well, those are my creations for the SSDS  challenge this week. Now it is your turn. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with. 

Have a great weekend.
Thanks for stopping,

What a fun combo of embossing and colors on your teacup card. Very cute idea to add a border punched liner to your bubblegum card.
