The first card was for an inspiration challenge (see image in challenge thread ). I was inspired by the black and white of the inspiration image. I created the background using a Tim Holtz embossing folder and lightly sanding the surface. Then I used the spider web stamp as the focal image of the card and added lots of embellishments and a giant die cut spider that I glittered up with some Stickles.
