Card for a market trader

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well or getting there...hugs
Another simple card this morning for my cousin's youngest son who is a market trader. No, not the stock market, the kind of market where we all love to shop for bargains LOL.


I used an old postcard for this. I added the caption because the original was in white and very faint. The church in the background was Mount Tabor and it's where my cousins and I went to Sunday school in the 1940s. I cut the mat with Grand Nestie and layered onto ivory textured card from goodness knows where, I've had it that long! Sentiment is computer generated and cut with an Xcut label die :o)
