Treats Make All Cards More Exciting

The sketch for Stamp, Ink, Paper #172 reminded me of my favorite technique for creating a treat pocket from any size square of paper with no adhesive needed.  I'd never thought about putting one on the front of a card, but decided it would be perfect for this challenge.

 I was also inspired by Krista Frattin's card that we're CASEing for #GDP160.  I was inspired to use the same stamp set and colors Krista used for her card.    My treat pocket was made using  the Nature's Poem DSP  The leaf stamp from the Rooted in Nature stamp set that matched the DSP used was stamped on the inside of
the card using matching colors.

I was so excited to find that the fall Snickers candy bars are in matching colors to the colors used on this card.  They also have fall inspired words on the wrapper and one said leaves which coordinates well with the treat pocket.   I am also entering this card in the Watercooler Wednesday Marsha's Masculine "Anything Goes" Challenge.  What guy wouldn't love to get a card with chocolate in the treat pocket???  :)

Make sure you head over to the challenges to see the inspiration cards by the design teams and other creative entries.
