Social Butterfly Watercolour CAS card

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a CAS card using some of my favourite Joanna Sheen and Stampendous stamps. I started with my sentiment, I stamped it with Stazon onto watercolour paper, then roughly coloured with some Aquamarkers using the same colours I wanted to use with my image stamps on the edge. I then mounted this on three mat colours of card in these colours too. I stamped all around the edge of my card using the Joanna Sheen stamps.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Home Decor Project-Beaded Curtain Tie Backs

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with my favourite home decor make in a while. My father made me a four poster bed as he had some spare wood and I have always wanted one! So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains.
