Cocoa and marshmallows

I don't usually drink hot drinks (coffee, tea, etc.), but if I do, hot chocolate is definitely my go to.  So, I made this Valentine's Day card for my husband.  'Cause, really, hot chocolate needs marshmallows, right?
 Almost everything on this card is made from scraps.  The patterned paper was a scrap, the mug and cut out marshmallows were stamped and cut from scrap card stock and the sentiment strips and the yellow piece were in my bits and pieces stash.
I popped up the mug and a few of the marshmallows with some foam tape and it really adds to the illusion that the marshmallows are falling through the air.

Supplies:
Stamps: Lawn Fawn "Thanks a Latte"
Dies: MFT "Bold Stripes" Cover up die
