I think that the flowers singing in Alice in Wonderland was one of the most memorable parts of the movie. I remember NOT liking how the lion ones looked :)) This card was one that was put together sort of like a puzzle as I went along. I had NO plan and no picture in my head AT ALL!!! I always do, I guess that is another reason I like it so much. It just happened. :)
I took my Drink Me Alice in Wonderland digi and colored and cut her out, attached her to the embossed yellow background, added glossy accents in a few places and set her aside. After a lot of just sitting and staring at her and a stack of scrap paper I just started throwing stuff together. I had this scrap piece of a flower coaster from my other Alice card *remember her, I posted this earlier this week*
|decisions for Alice|
I attached it to the top of the page and thought it looked cute. I thought I was done... then I saw the scrap of the little Cheshire cat. Perfect I said to myself! Then it still felt plain. The flower was just floating. I got out my Twinery twine and added a strip. It still felt plain. I had already had this song from the cartoon stuck in my head while creating it, so I thought WHY NOT! It was a long sentiment, but after I cut the words out separately and placed them down the stem, they JUST fit. *like Cinderella's slipper, but for Alice in Wonderland*

If you made it through this post, bless you!
I have a cold and have not been sleeping well AT ALL. I have had major coughing fits the past few nights and wake up feeling super icky! It passes after a few hours and I am ok until bedtime again, but right now I am still trying to make it out of ickyness :))
