Quirky Turkey


Hi everyone! To all my crafty friends here in the United States, Happy Thanksgiving! I thought this quirky turkey the perfect image to share this Thanksgiving. I added scallop layers to match the colors used on the hind feathers! Both the image and sentiment used on today's card are from the Quirky Turkey digital stamp set by Doodle Pantry.  I'm entering this card in the "Thanksgiving" challenge at The Stamping Boutique and Creative Belli.


My card base is Bravo Burgundy layered with White Cardstock then Spicy Circles Patterned Paper. The shadow strips finished using the Scallop Edge Punch from top to bottom are Old Olive, Cranberry Crisp and Bravo Burgundy. The image and sentiment are printed on White Cardstock and the image colored in using copic markers. To embellish the card I wrapped twill around the card base and add a matching bow in front.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
