Mmmm. I love a nice ladybug for dinner.

And so do these black widow spiders.  I have been in a Halloween frame of mind for the past week or so getting a number of cards ready for the upcoming holiday.  This one is my favorite so far.  I think it invokes a sense of Halloween creepiness.  

I cut the spiders from black glitter cardstock using the Wild Card cartridge on my Cricut.  After a brief stint on Google to look at pics of black widow spiders, I adhered two red rhinestones to the abdomen.  The result was some cool, yet very creepy, spiders mounted on  Sleepy Hollow spider web paper.  Oh, and let's not forget about the poor little ladybug about to meet her fateful end.

Finished card size is 4 1/4"x5 1/2".
