Giving Thanks

I'm in major Thanksgiving Card mode now, with just a short time to finish my cards.  This one uses a couple of die cuts and some outline stickers.

It starts with a lattice cut out of brown and mounted on a cream card (die from Cheery Lynn Designs).  My focal is a turkey outline sticker backed with brown and matted on cream.  The focal and mat were cut with my Resplendent Rectangles dies. LOVE THESE!

I was a bit challenged with the sentiment for a bit as I wanted to use my outline stickers with the turkey - the ones that said "Happy Thanksgiving".  I ran into a problem, though.  The word "Thanksgiving" was too long to fit on my focal.  As you can see, I decided to change my sentiment into "giving Thanks" - easily made by cutting my word Thanksgiving in two pieces.

I think the ribbon and bow really add a nice finishing touch.

Nice Cheryl. I like that you cut up a sticker to get the sentiment you wanted. I've become brave enough to cut my stamps as well.

I like this card a lot. For the lattice - is that a die cut or what? It sure adds a lot to the card.

Yes, Carol, the lattice is a die cut. The die is from Cheery Lynn designs, but I know Spellbinders also sells a lattice die.
