Hi Everyone... It's another Cuttlebug Blogspot challenge today... This week’s theme is Gobble, Gobble, Gobble... Do something fun with a Turkey... So hop on over to the Cuttlebug Blogspot to see what the other Design Team Members have come up with under this theme and why not take part in the challenge yourself...?Now, we don't really do Thanksgiving here in the UK, so my project is a Christmas Card.This image is a Digital Stamp; unfortunately I can't remember where I got it from, sorry!

Anyway, back to the project..Once the card stock was coloured I cut around the sentiment using a die from Spellbinders Labels Four.Edging the shape using the NEW Green Metallic marker from Letraset to add a little bit of definition.Adding the sentiment plate to my card to finish it of...
