Tricks or Treats?

Despite recent assertions that I was done with designing new Halloween cards for this year, I couldn't resist trying out a Halloween magic picture card. Plus, it gave me a chance to use Therese Travis's adorable Angel Helena digi stamp and to try this week's Tellen's Place and ColourQ #55 challenges.

There are two tricks/treats in this card: Changing color & text, and the "vanilla" stars are scent-embossed with Black Cherry KoolAid.

Tellen's Place Challenge: Trick Or Treat; ColourQ Challenge #55: basic black, river rock, poppy parade, tangerine tango, vanilla.
