NonTeam Treasury Challenge #10

This challenge is now closed. Check back on Tuesday for the winner and on Thursday for the start of Challenge #11.

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.
Sofisticata 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.....
Peacock and Rooster Feather Shoe Clips from sofisticata

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 December's Merchandising Desk - gift guide, gifts under $..., gifts for her, fashionista, holiday party, party fashion, resort-wear, out-to-dinner fashions, feathers, turquoise, robin egg blue, ...

You have three days - until Sunday, December 19th, (noon - eastern) to create your treasury.

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).
