Thanksgiving Card ~ A Grateful Turkey (post #1)

Hello everyone.  I hope your weekend was a good one.
Mine was wonderfully creative. I had 4 days off so I worked on projects for the blog and for the bazaar I'm taking part in in less than a month.
EEK! Not sure I'll be ready...

I made this turkey with all MCT die cuts {except the head, face and feet}.
I started with the circle and stamped the sentiment on his tummy.
Next I cut the scalloped circle and added it behind the circle.
I cut a bunch of 'feathers' using the smaller of the teeny tag dies.
He needed a head, feet and facial features so I cut them out by hand.
His little tummy was bare and these MCT button die cuts fit perfectly.
I added some pretty ribbon to the frame and embossed the card front with autumn words.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front embossed using a Cuttlebug autumn word folder. {name unknown)
*Turkey body cut using the Scallop & Stitched Circle Die set from My Creative Time.
*Turkey feathers cut using the Teeny Tag Greetings Stamp Set from My Creative Time.
*Turkey head, feet & facial features cut by hand.
*Sentiment from the All Around Everything Stamp Set from My Creative Time.
*Hearts cut using the Stitched Button Dies set from My Creative Time.
*Blue frame cut using the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die from My Creative Time.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamp pad.
*Ribbon from Little Scrap Pieces.

May your day always be filled with love.
