Perfect Sentiments #5 - Thanksgiving Roast Turkey

Hello there,
Today's post is for this weeks Perfect Sentiments Challenge. We were to do a Thanksgiving card with Brads or Eyelets.  Thanksgiving is not celebrated in Australia, so it took me a while to come up with a design.  I made the Turkey with punches following a tutorial by Lyn Pratt.  I used the free sentiment on the inside of my card.
Stamps: S/U's Forever Young
Card and Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Bella Rose DSP (R)
Ink:  Stazon Black, More Mustard, Soft Suede
Embellishments:  White Twine, Silver Cord, Black Brads, S/U Gingham Black (R)
Tools:  Scallop Edge Border Punch, Scalloped Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Modern Label Punch, Bird Builder Punch, Owl Builder Punch, Dimensionals, Dble Sided Tape, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool, Computer and Printer, Sponge
We have been busy taking care of Kaela and Jessica our Grand daughter's early in the week for a few days and today we went to Grand Parent's day at Kaela's school in Perth so I have not been able to do many challenges this week but hopefully I will be on track this week.

  4. Oh Susan... can you ever make a card I don't absolutely LOVE?! Well, of course this is no exception as you are not only so clever, but everything works together so beautifully. As a matter of fact, I am on a "silhouette kick" myself lately. I love cameos and silhouettes, so this card is especially awesome to me! You really rocked this challenge, my friend!!
