Happy Veteran's Day!
Take some time to Salute a Veteran today.
As I was cleaning and re-organizing the craft room over the weekend, I ran across this turkey image in my stash of Thanksgiving things. I have no idea when I printed it (it could have been 2 or even 3 years ago) or who should get credit for drawing it, but I decided to get it colored up and use it for one of my cards this year.
My colors came from the challenge at
(Chocolate and Gold Rush plus kraft)
Interestingly, I had adjusted the printing so that the outline on the image was printed in dark brown instead of black. Looked really nice. The image was printed on kraft paper and I used ProMarkers to color it. The kraft paper made some of my browns turn more red than brown but I actually like it that way. It was a nice contrast to the chocolate brown outline on the image.
The polka dot paper for the background is heat embossed so IRL that paper has some shine and sparkle. The striped paper is from DCWV. I tied a double bow from deep chocolate ribbon using my bow maker and added two bits of yellow ribbon for contrast. The final touch is the three metal brads I added. Very simple design even with the patterned paper.

Hey, we're halfway through the week already and it's getting too close to the holidays for the days to be flying by that quickly! Come to think of it, I feel that way about how fast time flies even when it's not the holiday season. Maybe my age is showing. Happy Stamping. NanaConnie
