CAS Colours & Sketch Challenge #30

And here is my take:

On my Pinterest board I have a few Middle Eastern type pins – and they have one thing in common – color! They have the amazing ability to combine colors. This is what I thought about as I designed this card.

My card is a CASE of Kim’s wonderful wreath card (seen here). I know she was following a sketch, but, in addition to the great layout, I loved her centered image with white on white background as well.

The Mehndi Medallion image is gold embossed and then watercolored. Here is a detail show:
