    38. Ardyth I absolutely love your card! At first glance I thought the holly berries were Nuvo Drops, so your no line colouring is amazing. I found your tips and advice on the colouring very informative and I am off to give this a try. I could see myself mass producing this card for Christmas this year.
      Thank you so much for the inspiration, hints and tips.

    44. Oh my goodness those berries really jump off the card. I actually thought that they were covered in something like glossy accents as they looked so dimensional. Your colouring of them is phenomenal! Hoping your day is fantastic. Cheers Donna :)
