Spring Fold Card

When I print digital images, I generally print several at a time in case I decide to fussy cut and pop a section for dimension.  The ones I don't use go into a box and, right now, several envelopes.  I definitely need a bigger box or I need to use the extras.  Sometimes I have a problem because I don't know who designed the digi to give them credit on my post.  I've been trying to remember to make a note on the backs, trying is the operative word.  (This particular cup is from Eureka stamps. and is available in rubber and digi.  The sentiment is from a SU set.  'Steam' bling and handmade flowers are thanks to CTMH.)  After coloring I clear embossed the cup several times to give it the look of china and then fussy cut it to pop on the front of this card. I placed a small velcro dot on the card base and the triangle section adjoining it so the card would stay in this position for display. 
I made a small pocket on the back of the card to enclose a tea bag.
Challenges I am entering today are:

As You Like It Challenge - Favorite 2 Embellishments and Why  (My favorite embellishments are crystal gems, because of their shine and versatility, and bows, because you can make them from so many things and they add dimension.)
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #99 - Celebration with Ribbon (I'm celebrating friendship.)
Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Feeling a Little Vintage

Southern Girls Challenge - It's all about Texture
Hobbybook Designer Challenge - 2 or more designer paper  (These are fabric papers which I just love on this card.  Thanks, Sybilla, for giving them to me.)
