Happy Halloween Spider

Good Monday Morning, on the Dies R Us Blog today!
Today I have a Halloween card to share with you!
I used the Large Madison Window die by Poppystamps.  My sentiment was stamped on to the 'window box' in Black Licorice ink.  I used the Birch Trio by Memory Box for my outdoor view, which I cropped to fit in the window. 
The corner spider web is from Cheery Lynn, Lace Corner Deco H, which has 3 different corner dies to choose from, very economical!
The little spider hanging from  the window cross bar is actually part of a pumpkin die.  It's the foliage portion of the Plump Pumpkin by Memory Box.  I had just used it on another card and thought HEY, if I cut that out in black glitter paper I can surely make it look like a spider.  And I think it does.  And the more I look at it the more it looks like I could use it as a bat too!  lol  I guess that is thinking outside the box.....the Memory Box. 
A little Copic Marker colored seam binding ribbon, Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen and Halloween Designer Papers for accents. 

I will be entering this card in the Challenge at Scrapy Land, Halloween.
Here's what I used:
Large Madison Window
Memory Box
Birch Trio
Cheery Lynn
Lace Corner Deco H
Memory Box

  2. You are amazing!! I just love this scene you've created! How clever you are to use the pumpkin leaves as your spider ... I would not have know that's what it was if you hadn't told me! And oh yes I can see where you could imagine this as a bat too! AWESOME thinking outside the box! YOU GO GIRL!!!

  3. You are so creatively clever when it comes to your descriptive blog and your cards. Just look at this card. Black glitter spider from a leaf. I do not need to say any more.

  4. What a clever card! I don't even like spiders, but your card has me attracted and laughing, of course. Darling and pretty, the design is fantastic! Check out all those spiders in the background, and even on your sentiment! You must have cleaned out a lot of webs to find that many spidies! LOL It's beautiful, Donna! xo

  5. This is fantastic! Love that window with the birch trees outside, and the spider idea was genius!

  6. Oh you clever girl. Only you would figure out that a leaf die looks like a spider.....AND a This is the cutest card, and I LOVE all the spiders. Great scene with the trees outside the window. Super adorable, super fun

  7. That is just too cool, I love your take on this, great way to combine the dies!!

  8. So clever of you to make your spider from a leaf and I can see it as a bat too. You are so ingenious in your approach to making this card and you looked outside the box for elements that might work. And, they sure did. I love your card.

  9. Oh yeah, I am lovin' this one...way too cool!! You are a genius seeing both a spider and bat in a leaf stamp. I'm done with Halloween card this year but I'm saving this for next year
