Coffee with Cream Anyone???

I've made this card for a very good friend of mine to let her know I am thinking of her. I followed the theme set at Simon Says Stamp and have used the theme for my colour scheme, image and contents of my card! I've distressed my papers to within an inch of their lives.

On the inside I made a pocket to slip in a pack of Starbucks coffee sachets, tied with some coffee themed ribbon from Crafty Ribbons...

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
