Card with crazy birds and a globe

Hello everyone, I'm here with the first inspiring project for our May challenge, Opposites.

Now let me tell you, why this card fits into our challenge.  First of all, you can see a tall bird and a small bird, a male bird and a female bird. And I also used the two opposite colours (green-red) of the colour chart. Three opposites! 

These birds are not others than my husband and me. My hubby is a 195 cms tall (6 feet, 4.7 inches), blond guy and me a 152 cms tall (nearly 5 feet) brown girl. And our tempers are completely different too :-)

Here is my background:

Actually, I made this card earlier for another project but I didn't use it up until now. It was inked with Distress inks, then spattered with white and brown acrylic paints.

I adhered the new Sizzix globe die by Tim Holtz.

Behind the globe, I put a paper from Tim Holtz Paper Stash.

What I used:

Sizzix Thinlits die, Destination by Tim Holtz (664179)

Stampers Anonymous, Mini Bird Crazy by Tim Holtz (CMS250)
