thank you coffee pillow box

Good morning... So I like making coffee goodies and while looking for inspiration this morning I decided that why don't I just make a coffee thank you project for a teacher gift?  I used the Reverse Confetti Be A Barista coffee cup and their current color challenge.  Because the box of recycled coffee holders had spilled all over the floor at some point in time, I decided to use one for the tag so I could play along with the Addicted to CAS "texture" challenge.  And because we already know that I have a May Arts ribbon addiction problem, I used orange faux canvas, pink silk and light pink burlap string ribbons.  The sentiment is Hero Arts and the dies and stripes are from the PTI Building Blocks set.  I colored part of the cup with water color pencil and the other part with my fun metallic watercolors.  The coffee rings are from a Hero Arts Stamp Your Story set and finally I misted the tag and pillow box and used some white Distress Stain to add the white to the tag.  And for those of you who wondered (i.e. Lynn, Jen and ~amy~), the photography show opening reception was fabulous!
