PS SPARKS Challenge - Need to Venti?

Good morning! We had a great trip - but it sure is nice to be back home! A little time to craft doesn't hurt either! Here is my entry for this weeks Paper Smooches SPARKS Designer Draft Challenge:
Here is the sketch to work with this time around:

For this card, I pulled out my new Crate Paper The Pier 6x6 paper pad. As always - LOVE all my papers from Crate Paper! I used the Paper Smooches set called Hot Concoctions, and did a bit of paper piecing and fussy cutting. The bubbly border is a Paper Smooches die from the Borders 1 Dies set.
I paper pieced the cup, then cut an extra piece of the main cup without the handle, and attached it with foam adhesive for some fun dimension. I fussy cut out three of the spoons to make the banner, and smeared on a bit of Glossy Accents and some coppery tinsel glitter, so it looked like they had been dipped in coffee or chocolate (depending on what you prefer!)
Added some lace trim, some Glossy Accents and clear tinsel glitter to the whip cream, some jute twine with an enamel dot in the center, and the fun sentiment. 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I have two more Paper Smooches cards to post this morning, so I will see you again soon!
