Happy Thanksgiving!

I designed this card for the My Craft Spot Monday Challenge #32!
This weeks Challenge:  Gobble 'til you wobble!
(Make any Thanksgiving home decor, table decorations, cards, etc.)
 I think this card is sooo cute, with the little pumpkins and the colorful turkey!
The turkey and pumpkins were cut with my Cricut machine and the Cricut cartridge.
The turkey was cut at 3.5 inches and the pumpkins at 2 inches.
I cut the turkey 3 times with 3 different designer papers. I then hand cut the tail feathers out of each designer paper (K&Co)and pieced them together to make a multicolor tail. I hope that made sense!
(I inked all the edges before attaching them to the turkey)
The green panel was run through an embossing folder and cut at the bottom with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Cricut Expression; Simply Charmed cartridge (Cricut)
Stamps: None...I did the sentiment on the computer
Ink: Early Espresso (Stampin Up)
Paper: Greenhouse by Carolyn Gavin (K & Co); Paper Trey Ink
Punches: Stampin Up; Martha Stewart
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing folder; Wiggly eyes; twine
