First Easel Card YAY!!!!

Hello my happy crafters,
I decided to change it up a bit from my A2 size cards and try the easel card.  I got the inspiration from Erin click here to see the tutorial on how to make the easel card. So are you all excited that it's not a birthday card? LOL!!! It's a Thanksgiving card for some challenges that I will submit it to. Have a great day everyone and enjoy!!!
Hugs,
Norma

FALL/HARVEST theme
Made by Momo: Challenge is to make a project with a turkey.

4-1/4" X 8-1/2" score the base at 4-1/4" and 6-3/8
top pattern layer measures 4"X 4" paper from {DCWV}
bottom pattern layer measures 4" X 2"
top brick color layer measures 3-7/8" X 2-7/8" & I used a border punch 
from Stampin up that I won from Visit Rose for SU orders
Thankful stamp from {K.I.}
Create a Critter cartridge and used my Gypsy to cut 
image at 3.55" also on pg. 70
Peachy Keen Stamps{PK-754 Critter Faces set }
Used Tim Holtz Distress Ink{Walnut Stain} for the edges
embossed the feathers with the Fiskars plate{Braids}
Brown twine from Papertrey Ink
Used a button from a collection my mom gave me
Used 3D dimensionals on the back of the feathers and on the 
back of the whole turkey for double dimension hard to see on the photo.

Thank you all for stopping by 
and commenting:)
Hugs,
Norma
