Girl with Bird Shabby Chic Card (Polka Doodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums reading this.

I have been a bit quiet for the past week or so and now I have had an opportunity to create with some of the images I've been colouring lately. I love this girl from Polkadoodles, isn't she divine? I decided she needed a shabby chic card so I used Bo bunny papers, distressed and inked them up. I also inked the sign post and fence in my distress ink (Walnut Stain) as well as around the oval die. I have a few new cards to show today, I hope you enjoy seeing them all.
