Thanks A Latte

The goal was to make a thank you card for a young man who helped us recently.  Masculine cards - so often a challenge in itself.  I hope this is masculine enough.
When I started out I knew which sketch I wanted to use and that I wanted to use a tag.  The tag is tea dyed and "splotched" with Oxide ink.  Image and sentiment are GKD.  And the lovely paper which worked so well for the sketch is Adorn It.
So, very quick and easy card.  Colored the cup with Copics.
Here is the sketch  at CASual Encouragement:
Work It Wednesday - give thanks
Power Poppy - be thankful
Daily Marker - 30 days coloring
All Sorts - pretty papers
Time Out - grateful
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Stamploration CAS
Stamploration - Tagploration
