Cup of Joy [Paper Players #116]

Wow! I can't believe I have a second post today!
My post is for LeAnne's theme challenge "Cup of Joy" at The Paper Players. 
 Here's my "Cup of Joy" card.
I used a crumb cake base layered with the holiday DSP ..."Be of Good Cheer". I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the sentiment from "Sassy Salutations" and one from my stash.
I stamped a few items from the "Scentsational Season" set on the VV layer (gingerbread boy and steam), then die cut the mug and candy cane with the new framelit dies. I distressed an oval of red for my saucer, then popped the cup up for dimension.
It's hard to see in the photo but I also made a slit in the mug and tucked the candy cane right inside.
A few red rhinestones decorate the gingerbread boy and mug.
Here's a peek at the inside.
Hope you liked my "Cup of Joy" card.
Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

How cute is this gingerbread man, just adorable. Great idea about placing a slit to insert the candy cane (very realistic looking. The playful font sentiment is the perfect addition for this sweet cup of cheer, fabulous job!

This is wonderful, Diane! I love the classic color combination and the red rhinestones on the gingerbread man. But the candy can in the cup is genius! Love it all! Thank you for being such a loyal Paper Player!

This is terrific! I love all the little extra details you added...I can smell that hot chocolate right now! Thanks so much for participating in my Cup of Joy Paper Players challenge!

Super sweet, Diane! Love how that candy cane tucks right into the mug, and what's better with hot cocoa than a gingerbread cookie? Such a cute design!

Oh, Diane! How cute is this! I love the rhinestone buttons on the gingerbread boy. Inserting the candy cane into the hot chocolate was so clever. Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!
