Ittsy Bittsy Spider Halloween Card

It's Friday and I am on my way to Kansas City--Looking forward to some family time and some crafting with my niece, a visit to my favorite scrap store (the scrapbook page in Shawnee), and just being home! 
Today's card was a lot of fun to make--here is the break down
-card base (black) was is Close to My Heart
-Patter paper (double sided/used both sides) My Mind's Eye Blackbird "big dots"
-cream rectangle was colonial white from Close to My Heart
-3D wooden spider from Michael's
-EEEEK stamp is Martha Stewart
-Black embossing powder Close to My Heart
-Inside sentiment stamp by Basic Grey 

The wooden spider was attached with a penny and pop dots so it spins!!!!
I added some black fake stitching around the edge of the cream rectangle.  I love how embossing turns out!
I used the Martha Stewart web border punch and some white chalk ink to trim the front base of the card.

I love this stamp by Basic Grey--the font and flourish are simply perfect!
Check back on Sunday for the bolg candy--you are going to want this limited stamp set for all your halloween projects!!!!
Have a great one-
