CAS-ual Fridays Paper Pierced Turkey

Hi All!

Today I have a card for the CAS-ual Friday #19 challenge: Falling to Pieces. This translates to "paper piercing"! I am slightly embarrassed to say this, but I guess I should- I have never done paper piercing before! And, I am soooo in love with the results!

I stamped the turkey onto the background paper and four other scraps. I cut out the various "feathers" and glued them down.

The sentiment was stamped in four different sections because I didn't want to cut up my stamp. It was actually a birthday sentiment- I swapped out the word "day" for "FALL".  I love it!!!

Thanks for checkin' it out!

   Paper: cream card at 4" x 5.5"; PTI- terra cotta; scraps
   Stamps: Fiskars- Turkey Lurkey; PTI- Birthday Basics, Wreath for all Seasons
   Ink: Colorbox- chestnut, olive
   Other: scissors and glue
