Warm Wishes -- Father's Day Card

I'm so far behind on showing cards.  This is my father-in-law's Father's Day card.  I was stumped on what kind of card to make for him this year.  He doesn't have a lot of hobbies other than playing a guitar, and I have made so many cards with guitars on them that I decided to back away from the guitars.  :o)  So, I instead went with a cup of coffee, which is something he also enjoys.  The colors on this card are also unusual, but in the end, I liked the combo.  Here are the details as I remember them (since it's been at least 3 weeks since I made this card):

Size:  4 1/2" x 6 1/2"
Card Stock:  Bazzill, American Crafts and DCWV
Patterned Papers:  DCWV (Dots, Stripes and Plaids Stack)
Coffee Cup:  Wall Decor Cricut cartridge cut at 3"
Background Label:  Nestabilities and then embossed with my Cuttlebug
Parenthesis:  Dots, Stripes and Plaids chipboard set
Sentiment:  Computer generated and then cut with a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Doily Accents die  I added a little Stickles around the outside edge.
Stars:  George Cricut cartridge for the two larger stars and a McGill punch for the small star.  I embossed the largest star with my Cuttlebug.
Border Punch:  Fiskars
Gems:  Unknown

If you click on the picture, you really do get a better look at the card.

Thanks for looking and for your comments.  Happy Wednesday!
