Which way should I go?

Last week saw the start of a new challenge blog, Oh Alice! ... a serious little challenge blog where nothing is as it seems ... This challenge is 'Chapter two: running in a sketchy circle'.

So this is the sketch:
together with this excerpt from Alice in Wonderland:

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don’t much care where--" said Alice.

"Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.

I used a copyright-free picture of Alice having this conversation with the cheshire cat. I made a few little additions to the sketch, but I think you can still see it clearly.

The card is also for these challenges:

Challenge up your life 15: 'striped & at least 3 buttons' - there aren't many, but there are some stripes
Stamp something: 'recipe somethings - designer paper, button(s), ribbon
If the shoe fits Fashionista Friday 24: 'colour combo: burgundy, lime green, fuschia'
Soartful: 'visiting Wonderland'
Wednesday stamper: 'Alice in Wonderland'
Frosted designs: 'handwriting'
Embellish magazine: 'colour challenge with borders - green, yellow, pink, peach' - I hope the stamped border is going to count, and the ribbons
Fussy & fancy 5: 'movies' - in anticipation of the new film about to be released
ColourQ 21:
Papers are BG lemonade and porcelain and there is a little stamping - the floral border stamp that was inked with three different coloured chalk inks and clear embossed.

  2. Hazel, I love this sweet card. The colors are fabulous. And, the image is so pretty. I like cuter images better than the originals. How fun to have a challenge devoted to Alice.

    Thanks for being Soartful this week.
