Skinny Turkey

     I'm doing fall and Thanksgiving cards this week so my DT card for the challenge over at QKR Stampede had to include something with fall colors and I made it into a Thanksgiving card while I was there.  This QKR image is called "Skinny Turkey" and I can tell he's been starving himself since August so that he'll be too skinny to end up on the Thanksgiving table.  At this point, he's nothing but bones and feathers.  lol


I used colors from House of Cards.


     I colored him with my ProMarkers and used two different border dies from Spellbinders to cut him out.  I chose three different papers and used one of those border dies on them, then layered them to make the background.  I wrapped the layered papers with gold satin ribbon before adding the turkey image.

     I tied a little bow using yellow gingham ribbon and then left it at that.  It's a card which will work well for one of the many guys in my family where gals are outnumbered nearly 2 to 1.  You know I make a lot of guy cards!
