Today I have just made a quick and simple card based on this sketch from

I matted a black card base with some paper from Lelli-Bot Gothic Grunge collection.
I then added a triangle of this gorgeous orange card that I bought in
 Mary Rose in the Market Hall in Derby.

I also used this to mount my image Halloween Poem from Bugaboo,
coloured with a few Promarkers, and fixed with dimensionals.

Lastly I added a  spider (from Wilko!)

I am going to link this to

Happy Crafting!
