Cricut Cardz Challenge Blog Entry - Scallops

So here is my entry for the Cricut Cardz Challenge blog....my first one!  I used Storybook for the scalloped circles and Mini Monsters for the spider.  In retrospect I wish I would have made the spider a quarter inch larger, but oh well....life goes on.  After I cute out the black scalloped circle on top (the one behind it is all white to write on) I wrapped white embroidery floss around it to look like a spider web.  The black paper is some cool American Crafts foiled cardstock.  So shiny, but hard to see in the picture.  I decided the spider needed to be purple with a blingy gold belly, because if spider really looked like that they might not be so scary...well probably still would be scary.  Enough jibba jabba....here is my card:

Ingredients: Cricut Expression Mini Monsters and Storybook, American Crafts foiled cardstock (black and gold), K&Company Halloween paper stack, Stampin' Up white cardstock, Studio G mini alphabet stamp set, Versafine black ink, Stampendous glitter embossing powder, Ranger Distress ink in Black Soot, and white embroidery floss.

Thanks for checking out my project!
