Unruly Paper Arts September RAQ

Only 10 days left in this month.....OMGosh!!!  Unruly Paper Arts RAQ has a challenge running for the whole month of September, and I am just NOW getting my card posted.  I made it the first week, uploaded it and there it was left.....LOL

Here is my card for the entry.  It came about with bits and pieces laying around on Betsy.......always good to use them up when possible  eh?
I started with a cream card base and inked around the edges with TH Distressed ink.  I had a die cut, that really was a practice piece, just floating around.  I ran it through an embossing folder and highlighted the swirls with the same ink I went around the card base with. The cup is a Cricut die, with ink smudged on it and a sentiment from Inkadinkado (I think).  The seam coming out of the cup is piece of vellum, part of another die cut, this was snipped off and cast aside.
I didn't scan the inside, I usually don't finish them until I need them.  Then I can choose an appropriate sentiment.  But I did finish this card.  The inside says "I like you latte"  I crossed off the like and added a "miss you".  It is for a friend that no longer lives here, and I do miss her.  She was the Ethel to my THAT shows my age.....LOL
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a chance to enter the Unruly Paper Arts RAQ challenge
