There's an inspirational photo waiting for you at the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog for Challenge #477. This challenge requires you to use at least three colors from this pretty photo so feel free to use as many as you see but don't add colors that are not shown in the photo. Use your products with the closest color matches. You may also include black and white as long as you have included at least three colors. I selected purple, pink, and green from the photo but my paper includes every shade of color found in the photo. 

I have this gorgeous paper in my stash and when I saw the photo I knew this paper was just right. I went with a simple layout because the paper has a busy pattern. First, I die-cut a fancy rectangle from pink cardstock then cut the word, "Dream," also using a die with blue-green cardstock. I adhered the word to pink cardstock and created a shadow by fussy cutting around the word. With foam tape, the word was added to the front panel. I added rhinestones for sparkle then adhered the entire panel to a white card base.

I hope you'll drop by and visit our
