Turkey Thanks

Happy Thursday!  This morning I'm flying out to meet up with Tosh and Laurie for a fun-filled weekend, then stowing away to Laurie's place for a week of vacation, Montana-style.  I wasn't able to get as much stamping done in advance as I thought I would, so things might be quiet here over the next week or so.  I have a few things to share, but haven't typed up any posts, so we'll so how it goes!  :)  And for the first time ever, Mr. Verve is holding down the fort and trying his hand at shipping orders while I'm away so that I can take some much needed time off before our next release.  Isn't he such a sweetheart?

My card for today was a quick one I threw together last night while waiting for the umpteenth load of laundry to finish drying.  I stamped the turkey from Bountiful Harvest in Early Espresso, colored with Copics and added a bit of pearlized Smooch for a pearly luster.  The panel is sponged with a little Antique Linen and Vintage Photo, then I did the same thing to the Fancy Tag and added the sentiment from Happy Fall in Cajun Craze.  The background paper is from the beautiful Autumn Splendor collection from DCWV, and I scored all the plain lines on the paper with my Scor-pal for a subtle texture.  The edges are distressed with my Distrezz-it-all tool and I added some Vintage Photo ink directly to the edges.  For embellishment, I added some wide striped ribbon behind my image and accented with some super sparkly Smoked Topaz Czech Rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous rest of the week - I know I will!  :)
