JUGS2 - Halloween Card

Has everyone seen the new challenge blog Just Us Girls Challenge? It looks like it's going to be pretty cool with challenges every week. This week's challenge is a technique challenge - Paper Piecing. And of course the blog candy is awesome - $25 to either Gina K or PTI!!
It's time for Halloween cards, so my card is a little Halloween treat card:
I stamped the SU Sweet Treat stamp on purple paper with darker purple ink, then stamped it on white, green & black papers to paper piece the ghost, witches hat & Frankenstein. With the SU Sweet Cup, I had to improvise since I didn't have the correct circle punch...but the scallop circle punch doesn't look too bad. Here is a close up without the candy:

I folded the green paper so that I could make it easier to get to the candy corn in the center. And I added 2 black clasps to hold it closed. A cute little treat holder, right?!?! :)
