Birthday card for brother

I just had to find an excuse to use my new "Walter" stamp from Magnolia and what better excuse than a brother's card!  lol  First I looked thru a lot of blog challenges for just the right sketch and am pleased with the one I chose. I dug thru my scrap drawer to find some browns to use and decided on the plaid and stripes and figured blue to accent. I even dug out brads, which I have not used in a very long time.  I also dug out my old Quikutz dies for the hinges and used some nesties for the corner embellishments.  The sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps.  I inked all the edges and sewed.  For the final touch, I added stickles to everything.  lol  I am sure my brother will like Walter and his card as he loves anything people make him.  Thank you all for stopping by.  May God hold you tight in His love!  Blessings to all.

Little Christmas shepherd card

This is the card I did for a Christmas card challenge group I am in.  Other than the red cardstock, the papers are all scraps from previous cards. This cute little stamp is from Stampavie.  I think he is just too cute. I colored him with copics and colored pencils.  The sentiment stamp is from TAC.  I used a new nesties die for the circle.  Inked and sewed the edges.  I feel the card is a bit plain but not sure what to do to spice it up so it will be as is.  lol  Thanks so much for looking and may God always bless you.
