"Happy Turkey Day!" card

I've been thinking about what I want to do for my Christmas cards, but before I really get started on a full-force mass production of Christmas cards, I'd like to make a few cards for some friends and family and let them know how thankful I am for them!  So, here's a little "Turkey Day" card I want to share with you today.

I used some patterned paper from Reminisce's "Autumn Harvest" line, and Bazzill cardstock.  I also used some pearlized copper paper, but I'm not sure where it's from.  All of the paper was from my scrap stash!

I cut the turkey from Cricut's Create a Critter 2 cartridge, but hid his face with my gypsy.  Then I stamped him a new face with Peachy Keen's "Critter Faces Set A Medium."  I added a little detail to it with my Sakura Gelly Roll white pen and Stampin' Up! markers.  Then I stamped my cute sentiment from Pink by Designs' "Simply Everything" set.  I added a little faux stitching to one of the banners and my turkey's hat!  Then some gemstones from The Paper Studio finished it off!

I used the following sketch for my card:

And this color combo was the inspiration for the turkey's color:

Here's a little close-up of the turkey in case you missed that cute little face.  Kinda makes me want to skip the roasted fowl on Thanksgiving.  Well, maybe for just a little while!  LOL!
