Oh, Alice Chapter 18: Crazy for Daisy Chains

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, and where is the use of a book, thought Alice, without pictures or conversations? So she was considering in her own mind, (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid,) whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain was worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when a white rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her. "

Hello everyone!

We have lots of fun to share today at Oh, Alice! We have a fun new sketch w/ a twist from our very own Tasha. Here's the sketch:
The Twist? Use a DAISY or some sort of similar flower and incorporate it on your card! Nothin' like a little FLOWER POWER to kick start your mojo, Alice always says!

What's more? We have a WONDERFUL Sponsor today, Tickled Pink Stamps! Our friend and fellow Tea Party Member, our dear "TWISTY KRISTY" has organized a wonderful prize today from Tickled Pink Stamps! One lucky winner from this week's entries will receive a prize. In addition, our own Twisted Thirteen got to play with these super-fun stamps.
My original image for this card didn't come out the way it looked in my head. How many times has that happened to you? I wanted the bloomer ribbon to look like the twisted part of the sketch. Maybe if my image was smaller and more of the ribbon were showing. I didn't have many choices for daisies, so I went with the felt and sheer flowers, they add a little texture to balance out the bloomers ribbon. I choice the sentiment since I felt like the image is a bit more macabre. Nothing happy seemed to work.
