31 Days of Halloween--Day 5: All about the candy!

Are you having a great time with the hop so far?  There are some fabulous 
projects and pieces along the way, definitely a little something for everyone!
Here is a, well, you can help me decide--I'm leaning towards calling it a 
"tabletop collage."
Now THAT is scary!
 (Seriously, what's the point of Halloween if there isn't any candy?????)
I have little easels, and thought about just setting this out, but I have a friend who
LOVES Halloween, so instead made it an easel card:

Just in case you've never seen an easel card:

(The horrified couple are of course from an Altered Pages collage sheet,
the background was created from Dylusion Ink Sprays,
and the flames are from a hand carved stamp.) 
So, what do you think?  Is it more of a card, or a tabletop collage?

Have fun hopping--see you along the way! (The linkys 
are up in the top right corner, btw . . . )

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
