Happy Halloween

This is a halloween card that I created today using this adorable witch digi from Crafty Sentiments called Annabel Pumpkin Witch.  The sketch that I used is from this month's challenge at CLP. The base of my easel card is black card stock.  For the front of the card I cut a square piece of orange card stock just a little smaller.  I stamped a spiderweb in the upper corner and used a black inkpad to add distressing around the edges.  To that I added a piece of black card stock that I punched the edge using an eyelet lace border punch.  I cut a strip of orange, stamped the corners with a spiderweb stamp and distressed the edges with black ink.  I added that to a piece of black cardstock that I punched the bottom using the eyelet lace border punch. I added a piece of black licorice baker's twine just above the punched strip.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I distressed the edges using a black ink pad.  I added it to the card tucking the bottom corner under the baker's twine. I added five spiders all over the front.  To create the spiders I punched mini spiders out of black card stock and added beetle black glitter to them.
For the bottom of the card I cut a square piece of orange card stock and stamped spiderwebs in each corner.  I distressed the edges using a black ink pad. I stamped the sentiment on white card stock. I stamped a small piece of the spiderweb in the two top corners and distressed it with a black ink pad.  I added some more of the black glitter spiders.

This is a close up of the spiders.
