Quilled Scaredy Cat - Freshly Made Sketches #103

I'm quickly getting addicted to playing along with Freshly Made Sketches :)  
Here's the sketch to follow, which I turned on its side:

It's Friday the 13th, so I thought it would be fun to post a Halloween card :o)  I decided to quill a black cat to use as the main focus.   Before I started, my plan was to step away from the traditional black and orange Halloween shades, but I gave up after going through piles of scraps of paper, looking for an alternate colour no avail. So, I resorted to a brand new pack of 6x6 Graphic 45 paper that I was anxious to finally use, and came up with this traditional-colour-themed card:

Thanks for looking!

Supplies Used:
Paper: Black, yellow, purple quilling strips; Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells
Stamps: Inkadinkado
Embellishments: CTMH Haunted Assorted
Other:  Quilling tools; Quilling Book: "Thrilling Quilling" by E. Moad; Versamark; Stampendous black embossing powder; Black thin point sharpie marker (to draw stitches)
