Paper Sweeties November 2015 Inspiration Challenge


Hi, all!  It's time for another monthly challenge over at Paper Sweeties, and there's some beautiful inspiration for you to use when you create!  Check it out...


I decided to create a fun Thanksgiving card using some of the colors in this inspiration, Jake, and his cute turkey friend!  Take a peek...


Like I said, I used Jake, the Jake Sweet Cut die, and the Gobble Gobble stamp set on this card.  I'm afraid I messed up the pilgrim outfit on Jake, but I think he still looks ok. ;)  I paper pieced them both, added some Glaze gel pen, Wink of Stella gold marker, and heat embossing for texture and shine.



The banner was made using the Birthday Banners set, the Birthday Banners Sweet Cuts dies, and some gold sequins.


The sentiment was stamped onto gold paper, and layered onto the card base along with a doily, crocheted trim, a button, and gold elastic cording.  I LOVE this card, and I hope you do, too!  Please leave me a comment below to let me know your thoughts!


Thank you so much for stopping by to take a peek!  If you'd like to see more inspiration, join the hop and check out all the other gals' creations--you will NOT be disappointed!

Here's the hop list~
