Inventory Reduction Challenge #58 - Thanks giving

Good morning everyone!  I spent a lot of time trying to come up with a card for this challenge.  Why? you ask - because I had a particular stamp in mind for the inside and needed an appropriate front of the card.  After a full day, it's a bit difficult to think creatively at midnight - especially when the body says "Bedtime" and the mind says " Just a few more minutes".

I did get the card finished about 1:00 am.  At that point I wasn't in any mood to deal with Blogger :(
So -- here is the masterpiece!!

I used Tilda with Pumpkins (Pilgrim Tilda - my name) and Native American Tilda and Log.
The large background wreath is from Debbie Mumm's Harvest & Holiday stack from JoAnn Fabrics.  It is so glittery.  I colored all the images with Copics.  And YES! I have the numbers this time.

Pilgrim Tilda - B99,  95,  93, 00, C6, 7, E35, YR24, 21, 18, 15, 12, YG67, 63, E000, 00, 11, R21.

Native American Tilda - E39, 34, 31, 15, 13, 11, 00, C9, 7, 5, 3, BG49, 45, Y06, 02, YR07, 04, R08, and Red metallic pen.
Log - E25, 29, 53

 Here is the inside of the card:

This image is from Cornish Heritage Farms Stamp of the Month, November, 2007.  I colored this goofy looking guy with Primascolor pencils that I did not keep track of.

I hope you are having a huge laugh at this turkey!!!  He really is very funny ;D.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  As you're preparing your Thanksgiving feast, please remember this poor scrawny bird.
