Shape up!

First Challenge up for November is shaped cards.  I was going to just use the Turkey stamp (800K) But in every way I worked it it just seemed to plain.  So I decided to add a background to it.  I used the Darice wood grain embossing folder, and tore across the top for a rough cut look.  Added green cardstock to the background.

The final touches I tied some multicolored twine around the card and then using pop dots to add the turkey to the front.  I used letters on cork to add a name to the place card.  I love how this turned out and think the turkey being uncolored really makes it pop!

A great card, Amy! The woodgrain really adds so much texture to this card and helps to bring it all together!
