Freshly Made Sketches 102

I'm excited to be participating in my first Freshly Made Sketches card challenge since starting up this new blog!  

Here's my take on the sketch:

Whenever I've made Halloween cards in the past, I've always gravitated towards a scarier, busier-looking card, but for this 'fresh' challenge, I aimed for a cleaner, cuter look.  

The banner and web were cut from glittered, patterned paper by K & Company.  And no, that web was not cut with a die -I painstakingly cut it out with my trusty Cutter Bee.  I thought it would add more interest by allowing the background to show through. It still looked a little plain, so I used baker's twine to extend the web further.  I finished it off with a cute little spider button and sentiment, which I just may end up changing to reflect my nephew's birthday, which happens to be on Halloween day :o)

Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Paper:  K & Company
Stamps: CTMH 'Thriller'
Embellishments:  CTMH baker's twine; Versamark; Stampendous black embossing powder; spider button & ribbon from my stash
Other: Cutter Bee; 3-D foam tape
