EEK! It's a Spider!

For those of you who don't know, I am NOT a spider person - in any way, shape, or form.  When I see one, my heart starts racing, and I immediately freak out.  Not quite shrieking-jumping-up-and-down freaking out, but more like standing-still, won't-move-because-I'm-afraid-the-spider-will-disappear-before-my-husband-can-kill-it freaking out.  So for me to make a card featuring a spider... well... that's a big thing for me.  But I saw this Sizzix embossing folder and really wanted to play with it... and you can't have a web without a spider... so I made a spider card.

What do you think??
