Oh, Alice Chapter 46: Queen Alice

"Hush-a-by lady, in Alice's lap!
Till the feast's ready, we've time for a nap.
When the feast's over, we'll go to the ball -
Red Queen, and White Queen, and Alice, and all!"
~ "Queen Alice", Through The Looking-Glass


We here at Oh Alice, hereby cordially invite you to meet Iracebeth the Red Queen of Crims and Mirana the White Queen. Iracebeth and Mirana are sisters who couldn't be more different: while the White Queen is kind and gentle and is loved by everyone, the Red Queen's answer to everything is "Off with their heads!"

To honor our Royal Highnesses, we challenge you to choose which Royal Court you would want to have rule over you, the Red Queen's or the White Queen's???

So the challenge this week, if you should choose to accept it, is to create a card/project that is either mostly white or mostly red.

This week's Oh, Alice challenge is being sponsored by Baby Bud Designs!

"The Baby Bud illustrations you see in the shop have been drawn ‘free hand’ by the artist and owner, Mary Anne Wainright. There is never any computer re-imaging involved. Their quirky little imperfections are what make them original, unique and whimsical and reminds the viewer that they were created from the heart."

Baby Bud Designs has not only generously let the DT use her images, but is also offering the winner a choice ofTWO digital images from their Baby Bud Designs Etsy Shop!

For my card I used a layout I saw in my last issue on PaperCrafts magazine.  I colored my little lady bug with Copic markers.  The designer paper is from Papertrey (2008 Bitty Box Basic, Distressed Dots).  The sentiment is from Stampendous.  I also used Spellbinders Nesties Labels Four.  I'm also entering this in Pile It On's Cute Kids Challenge.

You have until Friday, January 21st, 8pm CST to submit your creations using the linky tool below. We look forward to seeing which Queen will win!
