Just Magnolia Challenge - Week 11 Tilda Halloween Mono Card

Good Day everyone. I had a productive week. Was able to finish another card. This card is for the Just Magnolia Challenge - Week 11. Here is the image for the sketch.

I always wanted to make a mono colors card with only grayish colors. The Halloween Tilda image is my first choice to try this card out. You can purchase this image from my favorite Magnolia stamp store here: http://www.magnoliastamps.us/ where I get all of my Magnolia stamps. I thought Halloween would be the type of occasion that I can use these colors besides the wedding or graduation themes. I also used a package of Jolee's emebellishment to help adding some details for this card. There was a full spider web from this embellishment, what I did was I cut the spider web into a few pieces, so I can use them to decorate some of the corners as you can see from the pictures.
Since the original image Tilda was holding a spider, but I really didn't feel like cutting the thin string just because I didn't dare to. LOL, instead, I've added a silver cord on Tilda's finger and put a spider from this Jolee's package. That way, there would add some dimensional details on the card.
Ok, here are the pics for my card. Thanks for dropping by and will see you soon!
Here is my card:

Hi Cabio!
Wow this is the first time I have seen an all grey card. I am impressed!!! It certainly did work well with the Halloween Tilda with Spider. I like it!!!
Great work to try this out - I don't have my grey Copics yet to even do hair. This is different and great.
Hugs, Candy

Cabio,
You did a super job! Greys are an obsession with me, I use them on almost all my cards but haven't ever done a whole grey card.
You have inspired me to try.

Cabio, wonderful card. Great job in using this monochromatic colour scheme. I love playing around with black and white, but haven't tried it with grey. The inside of your card is wonderfultoo. I like those corner spider webs.
