Caught in a web...

My friend, Barb, has the coolest Halloween blog. I wanted to try her Monday Macabre challenge which required something with wings. I had this Fiskars web texture plate and I though a black button with black scrapper's floss would make a great spider! There is a piece of tulle layered between the black web and the base card. This was white and I rubbed my Noir PH pad over it to color. I also ended up with black fingers! I tried to wash it off but some will just have to wear off.For my "winged" image I used the ladybug from the Squiggle Ladybugs set and embossed it in black on the smooth side of some purple Bazzil cardstock. I also used the purple as the card base and black DCWV paper for the web design. The text I made on my computer, it's a take-off on a great quote from the Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. I think I almost made a spooky card. What do you think??
The original card had a bird on it but I didn't think the bird fit the card that well. Doesn't it look like the ladybug is trying to flee?
