Birthday Parade card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi everyone,

My last card to post this evening before stretching out on the couch to watch a couple of my favourite shows, can't wait hehe!

This clean and simple style card didn't need too much as the image is so intricate and detailed, I didn't want my card to overshadow that so I just wanted to add lots of colour to the whole card. The oh-so-adorable image is from the one and only Saturated Canary.
