Colours can be challenging in themselves, but to incorporate a CASE'd card at
LiM where I chose Sarah's card to CASE, a colour Fusion challenge  and an anything goes plus a sketch challenge at Uniko  and an around the world with Altenew ......challenges indeed this week...and bonus of all a little photo from  one of our trips to see our daughter in the UAE, inspiration indeed....

I also decided to give my sewing machine an airing with some lovely new silver thread I recently bought....just we crafters do! AND this was my first attempt at proper watercolouring, so not so perfect but oh did I make a lovely mess, used up a lot of paper and had loads of fun, especiaaly as one of the paints was a lovely shimmery silver! Not a good photo as the silver shimmer on the bottom flower looks a bit gold instead of silvery....never mind. I used silver to emboss the flowers and the die cut heart I placed over the stitching so that just a little peeked through....

Here is my card for three challenges this week..
