Football Turkey

You know the seasons are changing when the temperatures are cooler in the evening/morning, football is in full swing, the leaves start changing color, and turkey is on its way.  Since today is College Football - Roll Tide - I thought I'd share a card I created celebrating the return of Fall.  Now don't get me wrong, summer is my favorite season.  I love being outside in the bright, warm sunshine.  But I love what Fall has to offer too.  I just hate that it's the start of colder temperatures.
So for today's project I created a card using the Thanksgiving Turkey Football file from Apex Cuttable Designs.  I love that this turkey was made using footballs for the body and feathers.  To me it was such a clever idea.  And since it was designed more for use with vinyl I made one simple "modification".  In Silhouette Design Studio, I copied the turkey svg, released the compound path and then had a solid cut to use for the base of my turkey.  This allowed me to have the white threads and edges of the football behind the feathers.
The stamped sentiment is from the Hey Pumpkin stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas.  And by the way, this is one of the stamp sets that Tara is retiring.  That means it's on sale right now and once it's sold out - that's it.
I also used some Purple Twilight and Sunset Orange skittles from DoubleClick Connections.
