Celebrating Thanksgiving

Thanks, Gratitude and Canadian Thanksgiving is this week's challenge at Come and Get It Challenge blog.  Being a Canadian I chose to make a gate fold card celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving to me among many things means turkey. 

I found this cute turkey at The Paper Shelter that I coloured with my Copic Markers  then I layered the image, Distress inked the edges and add a ribbon to complete this card.

Come join us at Come and Get It this week.  Pop over to the Come and Get it blog and see the cards created by the design team to inspire you.  Thanks for stopping by.
