Happy Thanksgiving, Turkey!

Do you hear that voice in your head?! It's Stella, telling you to hurry your tushy over to Catch The Bug and join in our latest challenge, because, Stella Says Sketch!  That's right, its a brand new Stella Says Sketch challenge for your creating pleasure!  Bugaboo Stamps is giving away thier awesome images as prizes, so be sure link up with us at Catch The Bug, for your chance to win!

Today, I decided to go with a Thanksgiving card. This one is for my friend, Eric.  I make him a card for every birthday and holiday, so this is his Turkey Time card, for this year.  Of course, I went with fall colors to keep with tradition.  I used the image, AKV Thanksgiving - Turkey, by Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers.  Glittery, sparkly pearl brads were used to embellish along each side of the image.  I used brown and white bakers twine, threaded through a brown button across the bottom, below the image.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
