Almost Turkey Day


Well the Fantabulous Cricut challenge has inspired me to start my Thanksgiving cards! So today is my turkey card. I cut the turkey from the Thanksgiving cartridge at 4". Once I put the layer on, I decided it was too plain. I gave him an eye with a tiny brad and then I used brown glitter on the entire flourish. After the glitter on the flourish dried, I decided I still needed more so I added some stripes of glitter glue (orange, yellow, and brown) to his tail feathers. Much better!
So the printed mat paper is from the DCWV Autumn Splendor value stack. The ribbon on the bottom is from the dollar bin at Joann's. It's a Christmas ribbon but, it's maroon and went very well with this paper. The sentiment is from a chip collection from the Target dollar bin. Loving those dollar bins! On the inside, I added another sheet from this stack and then a freshly cooked turkey stamp! It's already November and turkey day is soon coming!!!
