Trick or Treat Me!

Hi! It's Gini and I am thrilled to be hosting today's challenge!
I know you are probably getting sick of Halloween challenges,
so I came up with something a little different.
I would love for you to either "Trick Me" with your card
(with hidden flaps, pockets, sliding get the idea)
or "Treat Me" with an over the top gorgeous card!
It's really simple and it doesn't have to have
anything to do with Halloween.
Just have fun!
