"Pretty" Scary Halloween Tag

Our next Cricut Circle Blogiversary Challenge is:

The Challenge: Create a project of your choice using your Cuttlebug machine as the main focus. Your project must include at least 2 different Cricut Image Cuts.

I haven't made a tag lately, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to prepare for my spooky gift giving.  Carts I used include October 31st, Flower Shoppe and the Shape Library from the Imagine. I fulfilled the challenge by utilizing the web cuttlebug embossing folder.  Other materials used included SU & Core'dinations cardstock, Martha Stewart chunky glitter, SU elegant eggplant craft ink, Ranger forest moss distress ink, Adirondack metallic paint dabber in silver, Teresa Collins gem and hand dyed seam ribbon that I made last week.

I wanted to give the tag a spooky feminine look so I added the flowers to create the spiders body in addition to the chunky glitter.  I also raised up it's legs to complete the 3D effect.  I then finished the look with the hand dyed seam ribbon and gem.  "Pretty" scary...isn't it?  ;)

I also entered it into the following challenges:
