Dracula's Halloween Card

This is a card (it's been a while for a card) I made which is very similar to the Dracula Halloween House posted yesterday. I had a couple stickers left from the project - just like "left-overs".........I actually put them away and wondered why I shouldn't just use them because, they will be forgotten until next year and then there will be something new.........ever get in this pickle? In my quest to use up what I have..........this card was created!

Close-up of the card front at the bottom - there's a red adhesive rhinestone on the spider:
Message is a rub-on (it is from one of those $1 bins)

Card Inside: sponge the inside card pieces (including the fold) using Black ink.
Simple pieces for this card:
Outside card front:
(1) Basic Grey 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", score along 8-1/2" side @4-1/4"
(1) 3/3/4" x 4-3/4" Going Grey (retired) mat, emboss using web folder
(1) 1" x 3-1/2" Real Red CS for Dripping Blood Punch Boarder Punch
(1) 1" x 3-1/2" Black CS for the Graveyard Boarder Punch
(1) 8" cut 1/4" Red Organdy Ribbon
Inside card (not in photo below):
(1) Whisper White CS 3-3/4" x 4-3/4" Whisper White CS
(1) 1" x 3-3/4" Real Red CS for Dripping Blood Punch
Graveyard boarder sponged with Craft White ink. Web, Dripping Blood Boarder, Card edges are all sponged with black ink

These are the left over stickers purchased at your local crafts tore..........the edges are sponged using black ink - it works and looks so much better, too:
