Cup of Cocoa?

Hello Friends & Followers!  Hope everyone is doing well among the hustle and bustle of the holidays.  Today I have a card I designed for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps' Inspiration Challenge 17 over at Splitcoaststampers.  The photo Taylor Usry chose for the challenge was warm & delicious indeed:
I went with a cocoa theme using SNSS' one and only Cocoa mousetucked inside this mug of cocoa with a candy cane sticking out:
It doesn't show in the photo, but I went over the snowflakes in the cup with a Quickie Glue pen and sprinkled iridescent glitter over it and BOY does it ever SPARKLE!  I added some Glossy Accents over the candy cane too to give it some gloss & shine.  I layers a bunch of snowflake punched shapes and topped them with a red button and some red & white twine that reminds me of peppermint which matched the glittery horizontal striped peppermint stick ribbon I purchased at Michaels that I wrapped around a piece of white cardstock that I punched with a scalloped border on both sides.  I also embossed the red background using my Snowflakes CB EF (I don't know what it is about red snowflakes that intrigue me so much... probably just that I like red and I like snowflakes) and matted my Copic colored Cocoa image on some red foil cardstock by American crafts - Voila!  Another card for the holiday stash, up to 53 now I believe.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:

     Thanks for stopping by to see my card!  I hope you have a wonderful evening.  Stay warm!
