Blossom Berry Sitting Pretty

Another Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy card today.  Colouring the image took me an absolute age to do (I am slow at the best of times) but I really enjoyed myself.  Loving having the time to sit and colour.

  41. Bev U really know just how to blend AND how to make the COLORS stand out. it's nice to see that this card had so much "RED" in it.
    There are many RED roses which are generally on sale, and seeing how well you use and blend in these colors. Thank You. Say can you give us all here in the USE a break, and let us know where you got your card's stand? It sure would B a real nice item to have, so that I clould put my grams home made ornament she made me her last christmas w/us here on this "plane of the living". So if You could help me out that sure would be appreciated, so know not how much!
