S2GSC33 -- Twisted Thursday

Good Morning! It's time for another Twisted Thursday and another chance at winning a Shirley's 2 Girls stamp. It's easy to play... so please join us:
  • Just make a card following this week's sketch (shown above). Be sure to include this week's twist - use wire. (You are not required to use S2G stamps.)
  • Post your card to your blog/online gallery. Be sure to note keywords S2GSC33 and shirleys2girls.
  • Use Mr. Linky to post a direct link to your card on the S2G Challenge Blog.
  • Deadline for submission is Wednesday, November 18.
I really had fun playing with my new S2G Happy Turkey Day (SG 306) image. I paper pieced the sentiment as well as the football and leaf. In addition, I added paper piercing to the swirl and around the scalloped edges. For some reason, my card this week had a mind of its own... it just kept telling me that my image panel wanted to be placed at an angle and to the left of the circle (hehe)! For the circular element, I used 2 different sizes of scallop circles. To satisfy this week's wire twist, I threaded thin wire around the edge of the larger circle. I finished my card with a fancy brad.
Supplies: Stamps - Happy Turkey Day (SG306) by S2G; Paper - PTI select white, DCWV textured cardstock, SU! more mustard, soft suede as well as Recollections autumn collection DP; Ink - Copic markers for coloring, more mustard and really rust for sponging, VersaMark Pen; Accessories - Clear EP, dimensionals, Recollections fancy brad from the autumn collection, MM wire, various circle punches and Nestabilities rectangular scallop die.
Hope you like my take on this week's challenge. Here's some more inspiration from the other DT members:
