Crazy birds by Tim Holtz on brown background

When I read the Monday Challenge theme of the Simon Says Stamp blog: INSPIRED BY A SONG, I knew immediately that this is just for me.

So I made a card for my hubby because at the beginning of March this will be the 25th anniversary of our first date :-)

For the card I chose Cyndi Lauper's song: the True Colours. The refrain says: "I see your true true colours and that's why I love you..." and this is my massage to my lovely husband. 

And one more thing... Do you see that I chose a boy crazy bird from the Crazy Birds set and one girl crazy bird from the Mini Crazy Birds set? And do you know why? Because this difference between the two birds is the same between us in reality :-) My hubby is a tall blond man with 194 cm and I am a tiny brown something with 152 cm :-D

Anyway, here are some photos about the making:

What I used:

Sizzix Framelits Die, Rectangles (658610)

Ranger Distress markers

Tim Holtz Idea-ology, Chit Chat stickers

acrylic paint (beige)

Happy crafting!
