Show and Tell Challenge

May black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, May luck be yours on Halloween!!
Happy Halloween Everyone!!  Thank you so much to all of you who stopped by yesterday
to wish me luck and to become a follower!! A special thank you to my sweet friend Jacque!!

This is a card that I made for the All That Scrap's Show and Tell C.C. Designs Challenge.
The Challenge requires the use of Black, Burnt Orange and Tan. I found a leaf shape that I liked and hand cut the leaf out of Digi DP's from the Shabby Princess Plentiful Collection to form an easel card. The cute pilgrim couple is C.C. Designs Digi Sugarplums Thanksgiving.  I found the image of the turkey off the Internet. I thought that it matched the pilgrims pretty well. I printed all the images on Cryogen White multiple times, so that I could give each image some dimension. I colored the images using Copics and Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. I glued all the image pieces together using Sakura Quickie Glue Pinpoint Roller. This is my favorite glue to paper piece images. The pilgrims were popped up using dimensional tape. The Happy Turkey Day saying is from Peddler's Pack Stampworks. I can't believe this, but on the end of the stamp it says that it is from 1994. LOL!! The border punch is Fiskars Falling For You.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that you will come back again soon!!
Big Halloween Hugs to All Of You!!

Love this, Suzan! Tell me ... it looks like an easel card but then again, perhaps has a tri-fold to support it? Such a happy card, well done!
