House of Cards #2

The sketch challenge at House of Cards is cute and fun for this week. I picked up this cute Penny Black  spider stamp a couple of weeks ago and I was itching to use it....so I made an early Halloween card ..... why not, after all I have been making occasional Christmas cards for the last couple of weeks.

I stamped the big spider web (no idea what company) onto grey card stock and cut out the circle with a Spellbinders die. The sentiment strip I made with a Martha Stewart punch and white embossed  the sentiment - also Martha Stewart. Added some brads and stamped the little spider into the net (colored with nail polish)

I stamped the CUTE spider onto white cardstock, sponged around the circle a bit and colored the spider with Copics. I assembled the flap. Lastly I sponged around the edges of the grey cardstock.
I know some of you don't like spiders, but this one is cute, isn't it? and the flap is FUN - right? At least I think so!

This is the sketch.
