An unusual bouquet...

I finally felt a little creative yesterday and had to try a sketch challenge on Paper Wings, plus wanted to play with my new stamp set, Spiders Are Seen.  I'm not a "halloweeny" type person but this set is a hoot!!!  Our Ink Spots ATC swap theme for next month is "Spiders & Bats" and I think this "bouquet" is perfect for the swap. So, what do you think of my card?

 I did use a retired paper pack called Simply Spooky, black and white cardstocks, and a black ribbon.

I used VersaMark ink and black embossing powder for the bouquet.  I don't think I'd like to receive this bouquet as a gift but I know an angel who loves Halloween that might! I colored with Copic markers (V06, YR07, T5 and the blender - I remembered KellyRae!!) and swirled black around the bouquet (much darker in real life) and used a "Kat Trax tool" to add black specks to the stamped image.  I also used 2 scallop oval punches.

This card will probably be sent to family for the occasion. I try to send our kids and granddaughters cards for most all holidays.  So, do you celebrate Halloween?  This is about all we do.
