Daring Cardmakers - The Darling 'bugs' of May

Here's my go at this weeks Daring Cardmakers challenge, The Darling 'bugs' of May. The challenge is to make a card with some kind of bug on it.
I set out to make a hello/thank you card to pop in a guest designer package I've put together for Julie so it had to be something fun and quirky too. So putting the two ideas together hello card and bugs I thought of how spiders pop out, (seemingly from nowhere, how do they do that?) to say hello. Well, they don't say hello but you know what I mean right? lol.
I made the spider from fabric and stitched on the details then I had a look around my desk for stuff to use in the background and grabbed a few bits, I thought the crocheted doily looked kind of like a web....
Then I just kept adding more bits of ribbon and paper stitching them on with my sewing machine.
Pop onto the Daring Cardmakers blog to see the other fun cards & join in, http://daringcardmakers.blogspot.com/
