 WELCOME to Challenge #21 - Let the Troubles Begin

"Hear the bzzzz... Flowers!"

  


THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "Make It FLOWERS! I need flowers after this long winter!" Your challenge is to give us flower(s).

Don't stop here... consider Twisted Sister's optional twist (bzzzz...) and/or use the beautiful sketches below for your inspiration.



THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "Have you heard the BUZZ? I just signed up for a class at the Pacific Horticultural Society on Valentine’s Day and it’s titled the 'Birds & the Bees'."  Don't let it bug you... add this optional twist by including "anything with wings" (bees, butterflies, birds), or something "B"-related or the words buzz or bzzzz on your project(s).


Join Twisted Sister in this catchy tune by Jewel Aken!


THING 2: Double Dare
has selected two challenges (#302 and #303) at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges, which are great inspiration sketches for creating Trouble Maker's "Make It Flowers" and Twisted Sister's optional twist. If you decide to use either or both of the sketches, you must link your project to the correct weekly sketch for the date of that challenge.

Note: If you are new to sketch challenges, it's fun and easy. Use the DT's cards for ideas or your own interpretation to create your project from the sketch. Feel free to change the orientation of the sketch... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also modify a square or rectangle into another shape as long as the basic sketch is visible in your project.
