My Kind of Weird

It was my anniversary yesterday, so I can finally share the card I made for my husband.  After 8 years of marriage, coming up with new cards for the one you love starts to get a bit hard.  I'm not really one for all the lovey-dovey mushy stuff! 
When I won one of Crafting Circle's spotlight prizes a while ago I had a wonderful time shopping over at Polkadoodles (Thank you Samantha & Nikki). I saw this image and knew I had to have it. You may think it a little unconventional for an anniversary card, but that's why I love it and I knew my husband would too. Humour is what brought us together. 
I think it's the most CAS card I've ever done - no embellishments at all!
The products I did use were:
  • Papermania cardstock
  • Polkadoodles 'You're Weird' digitamp
  • Promarkers - Coral, Dusky Pink, Blush, Umber, Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Black, Cool Grey 1-5, Aubergine, Plum, Amethyst, Gold, Canary, Lime, Bright Green, Arctic Blue, Pink Carnation, Blossom, Peach, Mango, Indigo, True Blue, Cobalt, Turquoise, Duck Egg, Cool Aqua, Butercup & Mustard
