Thankful - Dutch Dare

Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Dutch Dare Card Challenges

We're being sponsored by Robyn's Fetish and our theme is 'Thankful'. This could be a Thanksgiving card or any kind of thank you card if you don't celebrate Thanksgiving. Personally, although we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in the UK, I just loved this image, kindly provided by our sponsor, so much that I made a Thanksgiving card anyway...

I coloured the image (called Tom Turkey) using Copics. The backing papers were free with a magazine months ago. The sentiment is computer generated and I used up some old yellow flowers from my stash, adding a few gems. I have used Frayed Burlap distress ink on the edges of the backing papers.

I followed the sketch for this week's Sketch Saturday. 

I would also like to enter this for Make it Monday 

Thanks for looking, I hope you'll go and see what my talented team mates have made for your inspiration. See you again soon.
