Happy Halloween Spider

Good Monday Morning, Donna Phelan here. 
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. 
Here's what I used:
