Krafty craftin

There seem to be a few 'krafty' challenges around atm. Twisted Thursday challenge 32 provided this sketch, but with the twist to include turkeys, pilgrims or scarecrows and to use kraft paper or a paper bag:



I started with this kraft paper bag, cutting and using some of the inside to cover my card blank:



The card is also good for:

Daring Cardmakers
: 'getting krafty'
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 10: 'orange, kreme and kraft colour challenge
Fun with shapes and more 28: recycling (the kraft bag)
Creative Belli 77: 'raffia or twine' - well, it's Tesco value string actually, but I think that counts!
365 day 238: 'fine twine'
Die cut dreams 21: food and/or drink (the turkey)
No time to stamp 112: 'let's be thrifty' - 'use either brown postal wrap OR the inside of a paper grocery sack in your project'
Flourishes 'favourite things' challenge - I chose the line 'Brown paper packages tied up with strings'

The papers are BG mellow and marrakech:
