Halloween-a-thon Day 7: More M & M's!

Here is a treat card I made using the SCS weekly tutorial from a couple of weeks ago. You can access it HERE. Believe it or not, all products used on this card are current SU except for the cat tab stamp at the top, and the pom pom trim which is from Mike's. The main stamp set is Sweet Centers, embossed with a mixture of black and iridescent ice EP. This is a very easy card to create with a big WOW factor, and who doesn't like getting M & M's, right? These are the autumn colored ones, which went very well with my DP.
The only change I made from the original tutorial is that I used the Sizzix window card die so I could put my treat cup in the center of the card. In the tutorial they only used the 1 3/4" hole punch, so the cup has to be to one side. The circle I punched out of the main image so the treat cup could go through I adhered to the tab holding the candy inside, so that even after they've eaten the candy, there is still a greeting showing. It says "EEK! You're sweet!"

I had a lot of fun making this card! You should give it a try. Thanks for stopping by!
