A Black Cat Charm for Halloween

I've been anxious to start on the patterns from Barbara Elbe's Beaded Image II book and I'm pleased to say that I just completed my first project using one of her designs.  The pattern is the Persian Cat that I modified by using black and gray seed beads to celebrate Halloween.  Here is my Black Cat charm.
