Hi bloggy friends!  Are you ready for another week, and another challenge at Pause Dream, Enjoy Challenges?  Our challenge theme today is to use Dew Drops (If you don't have Dew Drops, feel free to use buttons, rhinestones, pearls, etc.)

My project today has four different colors of "Skitttles," a type of Dew Drops.  First, I cut out the crown from Once Upon a Princess and assembled it.  Then I used skittles as jewels in the crown- I used Watermelon, Sailboat Blue, and Purple Twilight skittles as the jewels.  Then I used lilac and cotton candy pink stickles to add just a little more sparkle to the crown.

I spent a lot of time trying to find a good background for the crown.  I finally settled on this dark blue dotted paper from Bo Bunny and a dark blue cardstock base.  I cut the chevrons from light green glitter paper (Recollections brand, I think) and an EK Success punch, and then put them behind the crown.  Then I realized that my Lettuce colored skittles were the perfect match for the glitter paper!  I wanted to make sure that the awesome color of the skittles came through and wasn't muted by the dark blue paper behind them, so first I used some glossy accents to adhere them to some scraps of white computer paper, and then when I ripped them off, there was just enough white paper left to be a barrier between the skittles and the blue paper!

For more inspiration, you can head over to Pause, Dream, Enjoy Challenges and see what the rest of the DT made.  Then you can create your own project using Dew Drops and link up to join us!
