    Hi Vicky, I’m so in love with your blue ‘For You’ Feathery Stencil card. I watched your video on YouTube and that’s when I first fell in love with it…😂 I love it so much I’d even do a bigger one and make it a print on the wall. It’s that gorgeous. Perfect colours for me. Perfect stencil 🙌🏼🤩⭐️ Well done 😍
