Turkey Card

hello! the mailman brought me a ton of peachykeen stamps (peachykeenstamps.com)yesterday, so i just had to break them in! i cut the turkey a bunch of times with my "animal kingdom" cricut cartridge at 3 inches (cut apart and layered it)...i stamped her cute face with the 3/8" bird face from the "Winter Face Assortment" (PK-520)...i colored in her beak with an orange Sakura Souffle pen (it raises a lil' when it's dry!) then i used my new "Medium Polka Dot Print" (PK-101) to create the pattern on the Craft cardstock...i first inked it up with Tim Holtz "Distress" embossing powder (to get it good and juicy) i then inked over that with Colorbox ink in "cream white"...then stamped my image and sprinkled "Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel" over it and melted it with my heat gun...i added "UTEE" 2 more times...so the end result is cool little domed white shiny dots...the Plaid paper is from the "Nana's Nursery Baby girl" stack from DCWV...i added a dollar ribbon from Michaels and called it done ;o)

*i'm not gonna lie...this one kinda took forever what with the hand stitching and all...but i think it turned out cute, so it was worth it!*
