Trick Or Treat!

For the Fall themed challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
This card was assembled from various bits and pieces from my Halloween craft box. I really have to get my supplies in better order as it has begun to put a damper on my creating, I can never find anything! If you have any organizational tips, I would love to hear. I've started by organizing things together by season but hope to refine that even more.
Have a beautiful day! Fall is in the air here, for sure. Crisp mornings and evenings and lovely color changes on the trees. Not too many leaf droppers in my yard which is sad for the beauty of it but great for less raking :)
