Case Study Challenge #150

Hi there is a rare day when I see a sketch challenge and know exactly what I want to do...immediately. Rarer still when I start making the card, on the first day, finish it and get it photographed and written up within hours of seeing the inspiration photo.  Today is one of those very rare days.  As soon as I saw the beautiful card by  Jocelyn Olson which is the inspiration photo for Case Study Challenge #150, I saw a Thanksgiving turkey with the beautiful feathers fanned out.  I looked through my stamps and found I had not one single turkey image, so I looked through the Silhouette store and found one that was just perfect.
Don't those fanned out feathers look like the inspiration photo?  Not the same colors, but colors that blend together well.  I dressed up my little turkey with a Stitched Mat circle from Lil Inker as well as the a frame from Stitched Mat Squares, and a small bow die, also from Lil Inker.  I stamped a fall color pattern using stamps from Mom and Dad Sentiments (Lil Inker) and the Give Thanks sentiment is from Waltzingmouse Stamps Teeny Trees.  I really hurried to get this one done, I was so afraid someone else would see a turkey in the inspiration photo and by the time I could get mine posted...bam, there are 10 or so turkey much for my brilliant idea! LOL. Great minds think alike, I suppose.   You have lots of time to make a card for Case Study Challenge #150...can't wait to see what everyone else sees in the inspiration photo.


Eeek the turkey, how brilliant Cathy! Thank you so much for sharing your very FUN card with us at CASE Study this week!

This is so very clever and cute. I did not see a turkey, I must admit, but now I see it and admire your creativity. And, such a cute turkey, too. Now I am hungry--he'd better beware.

Cathy, you are amazing! Your turkey is just too cute! So fun and I to did not see a turkey in the inspiration card but so happy that you did...I am heading over to check out the turkey files for Lucy right now. Love your card!

What a new twist you put on the inspiration photo - I was thinking a peacock the first time I saw it!! Love your fun turkey Cathy!!

Renee said...

Have you heard my friend's turkey story because now it's back in my head after seeing this?
the outline of the bird was in her front grill!!
But I think your turkey is much cuter...
and how creative! :)

Great idea to use the turkey and wonderful card.

I haven't seen any of the other turkey designs for this challenge, but I can't imagine any being better than this! You did a fabulous job with the colors, and that little bow in the corner is so cute.

Oh my word what an absolutely fun take on the challenge! Thanks for joining us at CASE Study this week :)
