Cup cake anyone ??

I know another chipboard hanger !! lol I made this one for the following 4 challenges;
Simon says challenge recipe challenge for you: Use 3 embellishments, 2 papers, and 1 image on your creation
Roses on paper challenge have a colour combo of Lavender, Soft Blue and Cream.
Stamp with fun challenge have a great sketch to follow this week.
And the 4th and last challenge this is entered into is over at Three clover designs challenge the theme is Letters (Not Words) mine is "T42"as in Tea for two which just so happens to be the theme of mine and Vikki's challenge over at Die cut Dreams challenge blog this week so why not pop over and enter.
But one I mucked up on and am not entered into is at Funky Fairys challenge they what you to RECYCLE something and use one of thier lovely products which I haven't coz I didn't read that bit until it was to late !! lol must be my age ...but I will just play along for fun and I will hop off and buy some funky fairy products so I am ready for next week.
Anyway I wanted to tell you what I recycled its the handle to hang this wall hanger any guesses what it started its life as ?.......no !! well I will tell you ....we go to Costa coffee most afternoons but one day a few weeks ago we went to Starbucks while there I bought some ground coffee and caramel syrup (yummy!!!) to use at home and they put it in a neat little carrier and at the time I though save that it will come in useful for something and today it did as I used one of the recycled brown paper handles on this project, I was very pleased with the result.
Other things I used to make this wall hanger;
Die cuts from my shop,
Stamp Bildmalarnas (very cute) and I coloured her with Copic makers.
Tim holtz Distress inks in colours ; Old paper, Antique linen and Tea dye.
DP DCWV glittered Kitchen stack, and BG Wisteria
Ribbon American crafts
Flowers Prima
Flocked brad Deja Views
Pearls Kaiser
I think that's everything ....have a great afternoon I am off for my coffee break at Costa coffee and I will be looking for what I can recycle next !! lol
Have fun
