Whomping Willows

Here's um, a rather different card I made today:).  I love the new willow stamp in the Tree set from Stamp Addicts, however having read Harry Potter with the boys as they grew up I remembered the Whomping Willow and somehow the willows took on a sinister new look.  I made a background with Distress Ink, a misting of water and the Dottiness stamp, added my willows, a die cut bat and letters.  It needed something else - yes - googly eyes!
I'm entering my weird willows into the following challenges:
