Bountiful Blessings!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hi Everyone! 
Today is my DT day over at My Craft Spot~
I have a fun card to share with you using My Craft Spot's Jar Full of Fall stamp set. I also kept in mind a few challenges I wanted to play in while creating this card :)
Hope you like it!
The card base is 5 x 5 and base layer at 4 3/4 x 4 3/4. The solid papers are from SU and the pattern paper is from We R Memory Keepers-Autumn Splendor collection.
The turkey is from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge cut at 3 3/4 along with the layers. I embossed the different layers with the divine swirl folder, the diamond folder and the tiny bubbles folder for dimension. I also added a bittersweet jute bow and some doodling. 
I cut a small panel along the bottom, punched a fun border with a MS punch and then stitched using my sewing machine for a fun look. Then using the Lacy Banners Metal Die I cut the burst, layered on the felt button and then tied a bow with bittersweet jute.
To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment with the Jar Full of Fall stamp set and added 2 buttons that I had in my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday Linky Party
2.) Craftin Desert Diva's Thanksgiving Linky Party
3.) Bitten By the Bug 2 Challenge-Turkey
4.) Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge #142 Thanksgiving
Thanks for stopping!

  16. My dear friend, this is such a lovely combination of sweet and beautiful! I adore that turkey something fierce, especially with the oodles of embossing you always take the time to do. (I love that you take time for details!) The colors are beautiful, as is the stitched border. I'm still afraid of zig zags. ;) The sweet buttons and sentiment are gorgeous. Wonderful design and execution as always, Sherrie! Have a sparkly and blessed night! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
