PPA 168 - Trick or Treat

I am on a Halloween kick!  When I first saw this sketch I immediately thought flowers.  I made a bunch of cards last week with flowers and showed them to a coworker and she said they looked like they were for old ladies.  It was because of the color choices (from color challenges) not the flowers.  Regardless, I didn't want to make a futty-dutty card.  So, since I had all of my Halloween supplies out I thought I would go with a Halloween theme.  Going with that thought process, I switched to pumpkins.  I thought the Jack of All Trades stamp set would be perfect for my pumpkin theme.  I later realized I don't have to many Halloween sentiments.  I went into the archives and pulled out some wooden stamp sets, I found the Trick or Treat sentiment in a set called Holiday Best, the stamp had never been used.  Believe it or not, I stamped the stems in black ink on a tiny green scrap I had on the table.  It is just dark enough for me to cut out the stem shape.  It's official, the black has died!
