Are You Feeling Lucky? Well, Are Ya?

My brother's birthday is tomorrow and I figured it might be bad luck if I didn't at least send him a card.  (I'm just kidding.  I'm not superstitious about Friday the 13th.  Are you?)  I was just happy for the excuse to do something creative, since I haven't had much time for art this month.

I used several stamps from Artistic Outpost to create this card.  The focal images were colored with Prismacolor pencils and distress inks.  The strip of burlap hides the fact that the little boy image ends at the waist.  The vintage buttons are from my stash.  One still had old thread in the holes, so I just left it there.

ETA:  This card was selected by the Artistic Outpost Referral Program as a "Top 3" for the month of December!   This is the second time in six months that I've received this recognition.  Fun!

Have a great day.  Thanks for popping in!
