I know, I'm early with this one.  However, with all these fires we've been having and the smoke that just never seems to leave.  We've been having a few more visitors then usual.  So in honor of them, I've decided to dedicate this card to them. 

I chose to use the following sketch from Freshly Made to help with this creation.

So, let's take a look.......................

The card base is black cardstock scored in half to make a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  The pattern papers are from We R Memory Keepers "Halloween" scrapbook pad.  The lined pattern was cut at 1 3/4" x 4 1/4".  The green pattern was cut at 2" x 4 1/2".  The purple cardstock is from The Paper Company and was cut at 2 1/2" x 4".  I ran the purple through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.  The picture below shows you a better look of the image.

Now, for the cricut cartridge.  I used October 31st to cut both images out.  The spider web was cut in black at 2 1/2".  The spider was also cut in black at 2".  I attached a small piece of orange cardstock to cover the section of the spider.  Then I used my orange stickles to add some glitter.  Again the picture below shows you a better look.

I glued very small rhinestones to the spider to make the eyes.  Glued a small length of DMC black floss to the back of the spider and foam taped him to the purple cardstock.  Add a couple more orange rhinestones to the corners and bam......  I was finished.
As always thank you so much for stopping by.  I would like to wish you a very safe and fun "Labor Weekend".  ~ Shawn
