Thankful Turkey

Jenn over at Jax Bean Stalks is hosting the last TUC Challenge for the year. She has challenged us to make a card with a cute Turkey, Stitching (can be faux) and Ribbon.

Because we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia I do not own a Turkey stamp, so I had to make a Turkey, so I took some inspiration from some of the other girls in the TUC Blog Group and this is what I came up with.



I have called my Card Thankful Turkey and made him quite festive in colour using up some scraps from my Christmas Card Making.  For his tail I used the scrap strips that you get from using your scallop border punch.  For his wings  I have used a scallop oval punch on some left over scallop borders pieces I stuck together to make my Christmas Trees on some of my cards and a Wide oval for his body.  His Head I cut from a Circle, his beak and the gobble bits are from a heart punch.  I finished him off with some googly eyes and silver glitter.

I incorporated ribbon - three small pieces under the red rhinestones and I used faux stitching across the top and bottom of the card.
