NonTeam Treasury Challenge #7

This challenge is now closed. Please check back on Tuesday to find out the winner.

A creative challenge open to all members of Etsy!
Create a treasury around the Inspiration Item. Win the Challenge and the Inspiration Item for the next Challenge will be something of yours! Who knows how many treasuries will be created with your item!

Everyone is welcome to take part in this Challenge. There's no team to join.

LimeZinnias will be judging the Challenge this week. It's totally up to her as to what she's looking for. Make the best treasury you can and just maybe one of your items will be featured in our next Challenge!

Please read the guidelines carefully before creating your treasury.

Our Inspiration Item is.....
Festive Roses Giclee from LimeZinnias

Create one treasury using the Inspiration Item above as one item in your treasury. Fill the rest of the treasury with any other items on etsy. Follow etsy's treasury guidelines. Do not include any of your own items. Make your treasury awesome. Add descriptive tags and give it a creative title.

Use etsy's Merchandising Desk ideas when possible. Some possible tags from November and December's Merchandising Desk - nature, red, green, blue, geometric patterns, gift guide, gifts under $..., gifts for her, HGTV gifts, gifts for gardener, hostess...

You have three days - until Sunday, November 28th, (noon - eastern) to create your treasury.

Requirements for Participation in this Challenge...
1. Read the guidelines. (Remember - only one entry per person)

2. Include the Inspiration Item in any of the first 12 spots (not as an alternate).

3. Tag your treasury with nonteamchallenge 7. (separated by a space) Be sure that it shows up in this search by the deadline for judging. (If your treasury doesn't show up there, it won't be judged.)

4. Be sure to include a link to the blog or this post in your treasury description. If it doesn't fit into the description, you may leave it in the first comment. http://treasurychallengenonteam.blogspot.com/2010/11/nonteam-treasury-challenge-7.html

5. Make sure that if you win, you'll be available to judge the next week's Challenge - and report the winning treasury by the next Monday.

6. Support other participants - View/Comment/Click on other treasuries in the Challenge.

Highly Recommended...
1. Become a follower of this blog to stay in touch with each new challenge and challenge winner.

2. Leave a link to your treasury in our NEW weekly promo thread by the deadline. Please don't leave a link in our ETC thread. Admin may see it as a promo thread and move it there.

Suggestions (not required) ...
* Keep your treasury updated during the Challenge. Replace sold/expired items. (Don't replace the Inspiration Item with something else should it sell.)
* Tweet, Facebook, Blog, etc to spread the word about your treasury and our Challenges.
* Use items from other participating shops if you'd like and if their items fit your theme.
* Convo people that you included in your treasury.
* Join us in our Challenge #7 chatting thread in Etc.
* Come back next week to participate again!

Time to make some treasuries!
Please double-check the requirements above after you've created your treasury to be sure that you've fulfilled them all.

Good luck!

This challenge ends Sunday, November 28th (noon - eastern).
The winning treasury will be posted on Tuesday, November 30th (noon - eastern).
The new Inspiration Item, and the next Challenge will be posted on Thursday, December 2nd (noon - eastern).

limezinnias painting reminds me of the works of impressionist painters, and here is a treasury dedicated to them:
