Spooky Halloween Tree

Good Monday Morning, Donna Phelan here.

Today I have another  Halloween card to share with you!
I used this beautiful Tree Of Life die by Cheery Lynn.  I knew if I cut it out in black glitter card stock I could make it spooky enough for a Halloween card.  I added many googly eyes to make it a bit more spooky too......no matter where you look it's staring back at you.....CREEPY!

The corner spider web is also by Cheery Lynn, it's one of 3 different dies in the Lace Corner Deco H set.  My little glittery pumpkin is by Memory Box, Plump Pumpkin.  I was going to draw a mustache on him to make him appear a bit more sinister, but my drawing skills are not that great.  lol   Sentiment heat embossed in black embossing powder.
I also made a spider....or is it an ant....by gluing  2 different sized adhesive pearls on top of my web.
Here's what I used:
