Sketch Challenge - Take Three!

This card is more Fallish than holiday-ish but still fun any way! :-) Stay tuned...my next post will be the perfect holiday card...

Even though this justjohanna image is a peacock, I kind of thought he could be perhaps a peacock dreseed up as a turkey...no...hee hee The background papers is part of SU!'s western designer paper, love these designs! And the faux stitching is a fun fit with the western paper. This is the first time I've used this style of faux stitching and I really like the look. Emily, over at Stampin' and Stuff did a great tutorial on different styles of faux stitching. You can check it out here.

My turkey...err...peacock has been colored with my Copics and then cut out and adhered, with dimentional tape, on top of a metal edged tag. I also colored the tag with the markers so my image wouldn't be on a white background. It's hard to see from the photo but the edges of the twill tape has been frayed for more of that western feel.

Enjoy and Happy Fall Y'all!
