Christmas Cheer Cocoa

I love the images in the Scentsational Seasons stamp set (it's in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog).  They are such a great size and I love how bold they are--which translates into just stamping/no coloring/fast cards!  This week's challenge over at The Paper Players is a Cup of Joy Theme Challenge where you make a card with a cup on it.  Here's my creation.  I was definitely up for the challenge because I have been giving a lot of attention to the other stamps in this set and I hadn't yet used the hot cocoa mug.  I picked my favorite Christmas color combo of the year--Raspberry Ripple and Gumball Green for this card.  I stamped my images from the Scentsational Seasons set and Sweet Essentials (word set).  I cut my greeting into a banner shape and layered it on some Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon.  My card base is Gumball Green with Raspberry Ripple card stock and Patterns Designer Series Paper layered on it.  It won't be long until hot cocoa will really be in season, although I hope the cold doesn't come too soon!  This morning we were only in the 40s but by afternoon we had a gorgeous 75 degree day!
