Enticing Black WIdow

Welcome to a new challenge! Whoo Hoo!  For this round we have a new theme -Recycle Something! That's right, we want to see you recycle something and use it on a project! Awesome challenge isn't it?  Be sure you start recycling those items onto your projects, then come link up in our Recycle  Challenge at Open Minded Crafting Challenges. You have two weeks to play along, so plenty of time to create! You could be one our DT picks or even a winner of one of the prizes from these great sponsors:

While you are here, allow me to tell you all about my project for this challenge. My card uses the image, Black Widow, from Smeared Ink, colored with Copics. All papers are scraps from my stash. My card layout uses the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I recycled the metal skull and crossbones that cam off another project that just didn't turn out the way I liked. The spider/bug is a creepy and most interesting die cut.  Don't you just love the extra touch it adds to this card?! I used a punch by Martha Stewart to make the fence.

Oh, oh, and this card is just perfect for my first try at the Smudgy Antics Challenge, too!
