Happy Turkey Day!

Cindy Haffner is the September challenge hostess for the CCEE Stampers, and she has challenged the team (and you) to make a fall-themed card. I decided to make mine a Thanksgiving card using Rubbernecker's Tommy Turkey image.

(click on photo for larger view)

I paper pieced the tips of his feathers with Amber Autumn designer papers, and colored the remainder of the feathers and Tommy with Copic markers.

Would you like to play along with us?  Visit our CCEE Stampers blog for all the details, as well as view the designs Tosha, Joanne, Shirley, Cindy, and Frances made.

Gobble!  Gobble!  Have a great day!

Supply List:
Stamps:  Tommy Turkey (#20-08); Happy Turkey Day sentiment (inside of card)
Paper:  More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Amber Autumn Matstack
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Big Scalloped Squares Nestabilities, Sizzlits Button Die, Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge die, More Mustard grosgrain ribbon, Square Lattice embossing folder, dimensionals
