Halloween challenges

I had originally made this for the Stamp with Fun Challenge - #29 Halloween, but I think that I may be too late, so I will enter it for the Stamp Something Challenge which is Halloween Somethings.
Unfortunately I don't own any halloween stamps, and the only thing I could find that was slightly halloweenish was a small piece of this spider web paper. (I don't half challenge myself.)

I used this image because I absolutely adore this cat face stamp from Inkadinkado (I think) as it reminds me of a little black cat I used to have and witches usually have them too.

I cut it out in a circle using nestibilities and cuttlebug and cut a couple more circles in black and orange. I layered the spiders web paper onto black, then layered some dotty black paper ( a sample from craftwork cards )with the circles and image. Three black brads along the edge to finish off.

On the left hand side I altered some card candy to look like pumpkins, I doodled the wording and added a cat charm.
Hope you like it.

I am also going to enter this card into the Crafty Angels weekly challenge - week 7 - Charmed I'm sure and the Allsorts Challenge - Furry Friends. I know I'm pushing it, but the cat in real life really was my furry friend.

Heres a couple of pics, wasn't she just gorgeous.

Oh wow!For someone without Halloween stuff you've made a fab job of this! I LOVE the little cat image, and the photos of your little black cat (she was beautiful)! I too have a little black cat, his name's R├ęglisse (liquorice in French). Thanks for joining us at Stamp Something!
