Stamp Something, Papertake Weekly and A Spoon Full of Sugar Hat Trick

Second post of today! I made this card last night to enter into the following 3 challenges:

Stamp Something has a sketch challenge by that very talented Katherina Frei this week and the layout of this card is based on that sketch.
Papertake Weekly has a theme of 'Frightful but delightful'. Well I tried my best to fit this theme.
And A Spoon Full of Sugar want to see Halloween cards. Now, I don't normally make Halloween cards and this Kerry Jo Stamp is the only one I possess that would qualify for Halloween.

Items used:

Black glitter card, Orange pearlised vellum, White card, Kerry Jo stamp, PaperMania brads, button and ribbon. I got my sewing needle out and added the orange stitches to the ribbon and I stitched the cobweb. Bats are hand cut. Sentiment printed on PC and coloured with my Marvy Blending Blox (shades of orange) I also used this to heavily edge the image.

I tried so hard to make the spider friendly....but I think my brush was a bit too big because he looks quite scary to me!
