Dress the Turkey for The Paper Players

 Hello friends and welcome back!  It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  This week the lovely Laurie has chosen the fun theme of "Turkey Time".

I'm also joining the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge where the current theme is Anything Goes.

For my card I decided to use one of the silly turkeys from the Full of Thanks stamp set from Art Impressions to make a fun and easy card.

This dapper fellow is quite fun to color.  I based the color choices on the pretty plaid paper in the background, similar to Shaded Spruce and Crushed Curry.  Keeping it simple, I added just a bit of a shadow behind him then die cut the panel with an oval die, matting it on a slightly larger oval of Pumpkin Pie.

Next, the sentiment (which always makes me giggle!) was stamped on white card trimmed down and matted on a Crushed Curry square.  I created a card base from Cinnamon Cider, layered on the panel from Plaid Tidings then decided it was too plain with just the main image and the sentiment. I took a leaf stamp from the same set and stamped it on a strip of Crushed Curry, adhered that across the card, then popped up the oval and the sentiment with fun foam to finish things off.

Thank you for visiting, I always appreciate it so much!  I hope you're continuing to remain safe and healthy, and have a great week ahead!
