Creepy Crawly Spider Egg Pod

Today's card is one of my favorites, a Halloween one for the MPS challenge! I think I will send it to my little sis for Halloween because I am sure she will appreciate it. The base of the card is gray 5x7 with a black layer and then the silver, white, black stripe paper from the DCWV All Dressed Up stack (love this stack). My original plan was to make the spider egg pod but, I made it bigger than what I like and cut it down to what you see here. I hand cut the tear drop shape using a scrap piece of black cardstock. Then, I covered the front with adhesive tape and added some cotton to it from an unrolled cotton ball. I cut some little spiders about a month earlier that were actually a layer of one of the Happy Hauntings framed cuts. I added the spiders and then covered the entire thing with a small piece of white panty hose.

The spiderweb was cut from the October 31 cartridge and the egg pod was glued into the center of the web to 'drip' down from the web. I added a couple more larger spiders to the outside and a pearl gem to one of the backs. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart Crafts and I punched the bottom of the black mat and the top mat using the Marta Stewart drippy goo border punch. I am soooo pleased at the way this one turned out!
