Happy Birthday!!

As soon as I saw these Tim Holtz Crazy Bird stamps & dies I had to have them!  I'm not even an accomplished colorist/cardmaker to justify the cost but I didn't care...they were way too much fun to look at....those faces....hysterical!!  I still need to purchase the Tim Holtz Crazy Things that embellish those Crazy Birds!  Anyway...I wanted to make my oldest sister Karen a birthday card.  She will be 60 + years in about a week & we joke about the older we get the more our bodies break down (aka fall apart!)  I made this birthday card for her...his crazy eyes kind of make him look desperate/shocked/alarmed!!  I colored him by mixing some Daler-Rowney? watercolor tubes I bought dirt cheap at Walmart. His wings, beak & eyes are colored & die cut out separately & added with dimensional foam.  The Tropical Teal colored card stock, Lemon colored card stock as well as the green button are from my stash.  The sentiment is from Art Impressions Giant Cake Girlfriend set. I attached the Crazy bird on the card with dimensional foam & doubled up on the foam under his eyes & added glossy accents to make them even more buggier!!  I think this card will crack her up & make her smile when she opens it!  Sorry for the bad picture!!  Thanks for stopping by!
