"Create" ... Give Thanks Card

This card was inspired by Robyn at  She challenged us to make something with a bird.  Because of the season that's approaching, I choice the Ever-Thankful Tom.
The patterened paper is from SEI.  The cut is the turkey from "Create a Critter", cut at 3 1/4".  I embossed the hat and sides of his tummy with "Organic Flourish" from Cuttlebug.  The feathers are embossed with "Swiss Dots".

I used my computer for the sentiment.  It is the "Olive Oil" font.

I added a strip of the patterned paper to the inside with a beige piece of cardstock.  The edges are inked with "tea dye" distress inks.

Thanks Robyn for this challenge.  It makes me try new cuts and cartridges.
