CIC86 - Let's Talk Turkey and a Farewell

Hello!  Wow Fall  is in full force and winter is nipping right on it's heals. 
Welcome to CIC Challenge #86 and just look at these gorgeous Fall Cupcakes.  They look so yummy.

Today our Sponsor is Robyn's Fetish and the prize being offered is,  5 Robyn's Fetish digital products (5 imagies or 4 images/1 paper).

Now before I show my card for this challenge I want to say that it is with a heavy heart that I announce that this will be my last Sunday as a member of the CIC Sweeties Design Team.

I have so enjoyed working with Rachel and the rest of the Design Team these past three months.  However my home life needs some looking after and with health issues with family members I just feel that I need to focus on home life first and foremost.  This does not mean I won't be back.  I still plan to join in on the CIC fun but only when time allows and as a participant rather then a Design Team member.  I encourage you all to give this challenge a try as it is truly a lot of fun.  Thank you so much to Rachel for allowing me to be a part of the DT and to the other Sweeties for their inspiration and friendship.

Now on to my card.  Robyn offered us the use of several images and even some paper patterns.  I chose to use this adorable Turkey image but my own paper since our colored ink cartridge was very low on ink.

I colored my Turkey with Prisma Color pencils and cut it out. Then mounted it on a sponged circle die and layered that with a Pear Pizzaz circle.  The card base is : Chocolate Chip, layered with Peach Parfait, designer paper, Basic Grey and a punched piece of Pear Pizzaz.  I tied on some Chocolate Ribbon, added some faux gems and embossed the sentiment (SU) with Chocolate Chip Pigment ink and Clear Embossing Powder.  -  So now it's your turn to be inspired and don't forget to link back on the Cupcake Inspiration Blog.
