thanksgiving page plans card

It is a quiet Sunday morning in my house. That is probably because the boys aren't up yet...lol! It is Page Plans day and boy this one was a doozy! I sat, and sat, and sat trying to figure out what to do with the dead space on the left of my card (right in the sketch). This is what I came up with...what do you think?

I used two sets, Turkey Day and Happy Harvest, from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. You guys know I had to use my favorite turkey. The patterned paper is from the Debby Mumm pad that I got for my birthday and the ribbon that says "family" is from the Target Dollar Spot. For the Happy Thanksgiving ribbon I just used a piece of cardstock, cut the ends and then slightly bowed it to make it look wavy. It is a neat technique that I've seen before and I think looks pretty good in this application. This card, along with the others that I've made with my SNSS, will be going to one of our sets of parents. I'm so thrilled to actually have cards for them this year!

I hope you are inspired by the Page Plans sketch you see here. You can go to the Page Plans blog to see what the other designers have made for today.

In the meantime...have a super Sunday and be sure to sign up for my blogaversary loot below!

That is just the cutest turkey! Your card is just awesome as usual! I don't get into Thanksgiving much in terms of stamps and scrapping (mostly just the eating and gaining 5+ pounds). But I may have to get a Turkey stamp and have a go at this year. Happy Bloagaversary to you too!!
