There are several parts to this challenge, 
but the only requirement is to play along with Thing 1. 
We encourage you to add some fun... try our options by participating in 
Twisted Sister's Thing 3 and/or Double Dare's Thing 2 
 to earn additional chances in our random drawing.

WELCOME to Challenge #150  - Let the Troubles Begin! 
This Challenge runs from 
Sunday, October 15th thru Sunday, October 29th
"Fancy Floral(s)" 
but NO Patterned Papers, please

THING  1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "No specific occasion is ever needed for appreciating the beauty or scent of flowers. Our challenge is simple - CREATE A PROJECT USING FLOWER(S)... your floral images can be stickers, stamped, digital, machine-cut, die-cut, punched, stenciled, and/or hand-drawn. Seems easy enough... BUT WAIT, there is one stipulation - NO PATTERNED PAPER! That's right - patterned paper is NOT permitted for this challenge. 

Leave those paper pads in their comfy little storage spot because this time you are going to skip the patterned paper altogether! We are looking forward to seeing the creative ways you make your floral(s) stand out. 

You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance in our random drawing.  

THING  3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "When I am in my garden, it seems as if there is always something buzzing aroundA garden would be incomplete without bees, dragonflies, ladybugs, butterflies, etc. My challenge is to INCLUDE AT LEAST ONE GARDEN INSECT with your floral project." 

Optional Twist:  If you have included an insect in your project you will earn another chance in our random drawing. 

THING  2:  Double Dare 
says, "If you have met Thing 1's Floral requirement using NO PATTERNED PAPER, whether you included an insect or not, you are eligible to ENTER YOUR PROJECT HERE at The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #302 'Flowers' and you will qualify for an additional chance in our random drawing. 

"Although not required, our partner has offered the opportunity to use some free digital images... click here at Beccy's Place, then page down to the Florals section to see an assortment of pretty images."           

Special Notes:   
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge is monthly in duration so they will be partnering with us from 10/15 through 10/29, but their challenge, "Flowers", will continue through Sunday, 11/12.
