Gorgeous caard! Love the colours and that image is so lovely. Your colouring is fab as usual! Sheila:)X Too cheap tho! Personally for an ordered card I would pay 2.50 upwards - for one of your stunners - 5.00 - they are one-offs!

JR Creations said...

Oh how I loath card orders but hey extra mula never hurts. £1.50 is waaaaaay to cheap though, especially for a Coops original! And one like that one with all the details, colouring, lace and flowers, well i'd pay at least ten!! Stunning card Coops just stunning!

Mags said...

Carol said...

Another Stunner Nic! Luv your colour combo and her paper pieced dress is just fab! You're crazy only charing £1.50, far too cheap Sweetie for your quality of work. Don't sell yourself short, you're worth loads more. Good luck in the challenge. Lotsa luv xxxx

Kathleen said...

Stunning card. Love the colour. I like the way the image is sitting on the LO.
I would say £2.50-£3.00 for the card but don't forget the envelope or box and cello bag. The boxes I buy is almost a pound so I don't think I would charge more. For special birthdays I would charge £5+

Beautiful card Coops, adore the colour combo. Great image, gorgeous lace and flowers too. Can't believe your're only charging £1.50!!! I usually charge £2.50 for a card with lots of paper flowers on it and I think that's a bargain, especially when you have a look at the ones in the shops!
