CHAPTER 27: Prizes for Dodo...

CHAPTER 27: Prizes for Dodo...

"This question the Dodo could not answer without a great deal of thought, and it sat for a long time with one finger pressed upon its forehead (the position in which you usually see Shakespeare, in the pictures of him), while the rest waited in silence. At last the Dodo said, `EVERYBODY has won, and all must have prizes.'


`But who is to give the prizes?' quite a chorus of voices asked.
`Why, SHE, of course,' said the Dodo, pointing to Alice with one finger; and the whole party at once crowded round her, calling out in a confused way, `Prizes! Prizes!'


Alice had no idea what to do, and in despair she put her hand in her pocket, and pulled out a box of comfits, (luckily the salt water had not got into it), and handed them round as prizes. There was exactly one a-piece all round. `But she must have a prize herself, you know,' said the Mouse.


`Of course,' the Dodo replied very gravely. `What else have you got in your pocket?' he went on, turning to Alice..."

Hello all!

We are so excited about today's inspiration piece, which just so happens to feature Alice and the lovable Dodo she encounters along her adventures in Wonderland. We'll even spare Dodo the croquet game today...less headache! ;)

The Mad Hatter herself is VERY fond of Tarina Tarantino jewelry and is lucky enough to own a VERY fun ring that she scored while in Disneyworld last time. Check out the fabulous Queen Alice ring HERE.

For today's challenge, we are all gaga over this beautiful piece:

Your mission today is to create SPARKLY FABULOUSNESS (yes, include some BLING, please!) as inspired by the above photo.

For my card this week I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #87. This is also my entry for The Pink Elephat #80 Challenge to use ribbon and sparkles.  I was inspired by the flamingo pendant to use this Stampin Up designer paper.  My dash of bling is in the sparkle ribbon, the yellow gems, and a bit of clear Spica on the Drink Me bottle.  Make sure to go to Oh, Alice and check out the rest of the design teams sparkly fabulous creations.

Good grief, Stampin' Up! has flamingo paper??? Now you are going to tell me it's retired, right? Love your card, the coloring is wonderful, the implementation of the sketch is perfect. Love the colors and layers, drooling over the background DP! But the detail I like the most is the way you have arranged things so Alice appears to be looking at the flamingo!!! It's all in the details, you know! ;-)
