Alice In Wonderland

This week over at Simon Says Stamp's blog, the challenge is to be inspired by nursery rhymes and fairy tales. I hope I'm not stretchin' it too much, but I chose "Alice in Wonderland". That's fairy tale-ish, right?!

When I think of Alice in Wonderland, I think of crowns and tea parties and keys...all components to other fairy tales. With it's magical characters and imaginary lands the whole story exudes fairy tale to me! :)

Since I also have recently purchased some steampunk stamps that I would like to continue to use, but haven't had a chance to, this challenge was perfect for me! Steampunk most definitely fits with Alice in Wonderland!!!

Here's the card (I'm calling it Wonderland)~

Isn't it fun?! I love the soft colors of it with the Victorian lace trim and all the little stamps that exude the energy of Alice's adventure!

A look at the sentiments~

I like the sentiments because it makes this card multi-purposeful (yeah, I made that word up) and I can use it for anything! :) I also used them for their meanings--time flies is a reference to the fact that Alice is not wanting to grow up, but needs to; fun and play are references to SOME of the times she has in Wonderland.

Close up of some details~

Other details~

I just love how my steampunk mini stamps are eclectic enough to match the whimsy of Wonderland! It makes me happy to get them out after being away for awhile...

Thanks for stopping by and taking a quick peek at my card! :) I am so grateful for you! I hope you're inspired to come and play along with us! Happy stamping!
