Hot Chocolate anyone?

I am not a coffee drinking and have just started to drink tea in the last couple years, but what I really enjoy for my hot beverage is hot chocolate. 
The challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut's Challenge Me Monday this week is Hot chocolate....how perfect.


I was working on this card last night but then my battery died in the camera so couldn't get it posted until this morning. 
This coffee cup/mug is one of my favorite cuts and is from Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons Cartridge.


Pink by Design is also having a link up party I am linking this up to. Everyone should check this one out--  no rules! 


Here's How I did it...
Card base is 3" x 6" ( 6"x6" folded in half)
Pattern paper from October Afternoon and all others from my scrap stash
Cup/layers cut at 4.5" from CM Cheerful Seasons
Label from CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge
Snowflake punch using mini CM pocket punch
Sentiment from MPS Winter Punnies
Chalk and Pearls for accent
