2 challenges and 1 white rabbit

Happy Monday to you. Hope you all had a super weekend. My kids have just started their Spring Break, and we're all looking forward to abandoning the daily routine for the next week. I'm sooooo looking forward to sleeping in every single day! I'm also looking forward to getting some scrapbooking done and getting my daughters birthday party invitations made.
But for now, I have this card to share with you. I combined two challenges with this one. The layout was inspired by this sketch and the theme was inspired by the latest challenge posted on the "Oh Alice!" blog. We had to incorporate text as an element on our card.

I decided to use my SU "French Script" background stamp for the text requirement and an image by Leavenworth Jackson for the main panel. My friend has quite the collection of LJ stamps and she let me borrow a handful of "Alice in Wonderland" inspired images. I've had them for several weeks now and this is the first time I've had a chance to use them!

I've got SO many fun projects to share with you this week. (thank goodness I got them all finished before the kids were out of school!) Tomorrow is the beginning of a new challenge month at the Hambo blog. And then on the 1st I'll be sharing loads of samples for the new Pink Cat Studio digital release AND the new releases from The Greeting Farm! I'm also thinking of doing a little give-away to my followers, so stay tuned for that as well.

We're off to swim lessons and the book store. Thanks so much for stopping by today. See you tomorrow.

Oh, me likey! This card is fab. I never would have thought of using the Archaic PP from Basic Grey for a Wonderland card, but it is perfect on this card! So glad you are playing along with us - thanks for the inspiration!
