Thank you shaped card (Saturated Canary image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope all of you in the US had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day, it always sounds so lovely, I wish I was a part of it (I'm in Australia). It's a lovely warm Saturday here and I can't decide whether to put the Christmas tree up today or next week, it seems funny putting it up in November, when are you putting yours up?

I used a few of my dies today, ones that I don't often use but I wanted to create a different shape for this card. Isn't this a gorgeous image from Saturated Canary? Oh, I bet you all notice again that I forgot to colour in her eyes, I have just noticed, oops hehe. It was very difficult to photograph this shape and these colours so I will colour them but maybe not get around to a new photo so imagine her eyes are whatever colour you'd like them to be hehe (feel free to help me choose what colour they would look best as I'm still undecided).
