Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

Hey guys, I cannot believe it is Wednesday again already ! I hope you have had a great week. 
It's time for another challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog.
The theme this week is Anything Goes and the team have been working with Spellbinders products, you don't have to use them to enter but we would love to see what you can create with them.
The winner of the challenge will win a $50 voucher to spend at the store !
Before I get onto my card I am really sad that this will be my last week as Guest Designer, it been amazing to be part of the team for a month, and also for that month to be STAMPtember made it even better, I really have loved every minute of it and cannot thank everyone for having me. 

For my card I have used the Hipster 1 die set from Spellbinders, I am a HUGE coffee nut so it just had to be this set for me as it contains a fab coffee cup in the Starbucks style, it even comes complete with a little die so you can create the wraps that put round them ! 
This was another total non planned and just sat down and see what happened card....seem to do them a lot lately. I decided to create a shaker using the die cut cups. 
The sentiment is just perfect and is from the Choose Happy Stamp set by Simon Says Stamp (all supplies are listed and linked below). Sadly the papers I used are no longer available ! Although I am going to try and hunt some down because I LOVE this pad. 
If you want to see how I created the card in more detail then check out the video below. 

I hope you enjoyed the video, as you can see the dies are lots of fun to work with and I think they have become a firm favorite with me already ! 

I wanted to show a bit closer of the detail I added with the pens and Distress ink and also the embossing detail from the dies. If I had planned it better then I would got some coffee beans and added them to the shaker but we only have ground ! 
I also wanted to show that you don't just have to use Sequins or beads in a shaker card and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
