Welcome back to another Color My Heart Color Dare challenge where we invite you to use the specified Close to My Heart colors to create something that you like.  (Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun!) This week we are challenging you to use all and only these colors:  Pacifica, White Daisy, Black and Emerald.
