Pumpkin Surprise

How would you like to carve open a pumpkin only to find spiders inside? Creepy! Well in this case I thought it looked kind of neat. Of course if it was a real spider I probably would have dropped the pumpkin and run to get a shoe or something to squash it. Me and spiders only get along when they are squished and even then I will only pick them up with a wad of tissues.
I found a great sketch at PPA #116 that got me going with my card. I also played along with Colour Throwdown #164 and Colour Q #107 this week (think I missed Mr. Linky on those) The papers are from the Brights Collection DSP. I made the pumpkin using the 1 3/4" and the 2 1/2" Circle Punches. For the stem I just rolled up a scrap piece of c/s and for the vines I twisted some strips of c/s around my paper piercer. The spiders inside the pumpkin are from the set Out On A Limb.
The sentiment is from Tiny Tags. I stamped it over the spiders that are the same as the center of the pumpkin and punched it out with the Jewellery Tag Punch and attached it with a Mini Library Clip. I repeated what I did for the sentiment on the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
