Happy Hot Chocolate Season

This is my card for Day 3 of the Holiday Coffee Lovers BlogHop and National Cocoa Day.  

Selected the paper I wanted to use from a prize I got from DCWV, a Wintery Scene...wasn't sure what I was going to do with it; but I know I wanted the main focus to be on the beautiful tree and snow.  The paper already had a sentiment "Let it Snow" and it was already glittered.  

I stamped, colored and fussy-cut the Fox, the Squirrel, some cocoa/chocolate disposal cups and marshmallows and placed them on the card.  Added a second sentiment and framed with silver glimmer paper on white daisy card stock.

Also submitted to the following challenges:
