"Thinking of You" Card

Still happy with my Nikki Sivils stash from previous class' left-overs and winnings.  I made a greeting card out of them.  It was also my 1st foray into using real stitching on a creation.  I usually do faux.  This time I took the plunge.  I made use of Fresh Brewed Designs' image: Flower Mug .  My concept was "Thinking of You while I'm having my cup of tea".  I also consider the colors used on this card as summer and fun colors.  So, here's my card:
