New Challenge #109 at Glitter N Sparkle

Wow was that a week 
Well it doesn't seem like 
2 minutes since last week.
Things seem to be picking up
bit for me now.
The medication is working but making me
incredibly sleepy,
I keep falling asleep at the weirdest times,
then when I want to go to sleep at bed time
its just not happening
And the Physiotherapy isn't as bad 
as I thought it would be.
But give it time 
I got a feeling they're 
just being nice because its so painful.

Here is a Cutesy Thanksgiving Shaker Card.

The Theme at 
Anything But A Square

3 Images from their store.

My Project for this
week is:-

Happy Turkey Digi Stamp
from QKR Stampede
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I used a Pre-Cut Flower White Card,
with 2 Petal Fronts.

Then I backed 1 of the Petal Fronts
with a Blue/Coral Flower Paper
And using a Large Circle Die-Cut
Cut out the Center.
Then put Clear Acetate
on the back to make a Window.

Then I printed off the Image
on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                Turkey -   Yellow (Beak, Claws)
                                                Mustard (Beak, Claws)
                                                Pastel Blue (Head)
                                                Denim Blue (Head)
                                                Dusky Pink (Wattles)
                                                Poppy (Snood, Wattles)
                                                Burnt Sienna
                                                Cool Grey 5
                                Tree -       Moss

I then cut the Image out 
in a rough 12cm Circle,
and backed it onto the remaining 
White Petal Front.

Then using Decoupage Tape 
(2 high)
I backed the Flower Window onto 
the Image with the petals off-set
from the White ones.
Putting Clear AB Round Plastic Beads,
in the center to make it 
a Shaker Card.

On the Inside of the Main Card,
(which becomes the Base when its 
Folded and all Stuck together)
I covered it with Crisp Cantaloupe Card
(Stampin' Up!)
and cut to the Card Shape.

For the Sentiment
I used the reverse Circle 
of the Blue Flower Paper
and cut out a Half Flower,
and using White Card
cut out a slightly Smaller one.
On the White one I used a 
'So Thankful' Clear Stamp
(Holiday Cheer - Stampin' Up!)
with Baked Brown Sugar Ink
(Stampin' Up!)

To finish off my Card,
I added 3mm Blue Pearls to the 
Points of the Base,
and 3mm Coral Pearls to the
Points and Dips of the Half Flower
(Both from Anita's).
And finally I added around 
inside of the window 
a White Glitter Circle Peel-Off
