Father's Day Celebration Table Decoration, Sign and Card

So I was inspired the other day by another crafty blogger to create this Father's Day table decoration.  She inspired the container made from theater boxed candy.  My husband loves candy, especially chocolate, so these M & M's boxed candies were perfect.  I changed the design just a tad. 

Basically I attached the boxes to each other, created and attached a bottom cut out of a portion of a cereal box and inserted some floral foam to hold the picks.  I created most of the picks and the sign from the Father's Day Cricut cartridge and just the hockey player from Sports Mania Cricut cartridge.  Each pick represents something my husband enjoys.  Lastly I tied the boxes off with some jute.

I then took a photo of my girls holding the "Best Dad Ever" sign and had it printed out as a card from Walgreens.

Here's the 5 x 7 card, the coloring looks much better in person:
