Scary Treats for you to Eat!!!!!

Hello everyone: I've been waiting for a chance to use my brand new SU set called Jar of Haunts, the instant I laid my eyes on it, I knew I was going to get it so, waiting for the Holiday catalog to go live was torture.  Anywho, here is my card which I'll enter in a few challenges at the end of this post.

Isn't this a YUMMY TREAT? I had so much fun making this card, this set is just fabulous for Halloween. I stamped the jar onto a piece of Canson water color paper with Versafine black ink and then I stamped the eyeballs, I heat embossed them with clear embossing powder then, I fussy cut the jar . I colored the greenish liquid with a neon green marker, the eyeballs with a bit of So Saffron marker and I added some Crystal Effects to the jar but, when I took the picture, the light was shinning on it and it didn't look good, but in person looks pretty cool. The spider crawling on the jar is from a bag of Halloween confetti and I think it looks almost like the spiders on the pattern paper.
I stamped the slime onto a piece of very thin vellum and colored it with the neon green marker then, fussy cut it and attached it with a piece of double sided tape to the top of the jar. 
The pattern paper and the ribbon are from my stash, the sentiment is from the set and it's inked with different color markers, just for fun.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment is so old that the name is almost gone on the wood block but I think I can kind of read the word Inkadinkado. I stamped the little spiders from the set randomly to make it even spookier. 

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.
