Morning sweetie this is just gorgeous, love the colours and paper, perfect hugs pops x

Sarpreet said...

stunning card, Also for your stall, have a sign that you will tape to the end of the table - such as Coops Hand Made Cards - then in smaller print - each card has been individually crafted and coloured in. Also, if you have something different on your stall - bookmarks, tags. That will draw attention, then your cards will go with them. Good luck - and let us know how you go.

Wishcraft said...
