To those who can dream there is no such place as faraway.

{author ~ unkown}

What would you do if someone gave you the following sort of directions, and a week?
Use this image in some sort of artwork, with the prompt: Dream.
You may use the word, or not, but it is intended as inspiration.
The image is posted at the bottom, this is my answer to the query.~

The challenge art is framed with copper foil. The large butterfly's path is marked by silver bullion, the small one's by vintage amber buttons. It is a truly vintage key tag that identifies the "key to happiness", whose ribbon is fabric cut from a scrap from Elizabeth's wedding. The tiny feather, I found on the front door step of Elizabeth and Justin's first home, the day that they first viewed it. {Escrow closes this week! Want to talk about a dream!}

You can view all of the other entries, as well at Mind Wide Open, but not until tomorrow, February 8th. It should be fun, I have no idea what the other submissions will be, and I hope I'm not embarrassed once I do!
