Shabby Chic Easter card (Polkadoodles image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I have 2 Easter cards to show today and they are very different from each other. This first one is more shabby chic with lovely pastel shades and made with a gorgeous little image from Polkadoodles. The swirly background is a digital effect from Scrapper's Delights and I decided to combine them to make one picture, I coloured the girl in. I also added a sentiment from DigiStamp Boutique.
