The Altered Alice CHAPTER 14: Week 2 Challenge: Splendidly Dressed!

"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!'"-- Chapter 2; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

April has arrived, which (in the northern hemisphere) brings thoughts of wearing your Sunday springtime best and perhaps donning an Easter bonnet! So we want to you to show us your Sunday best; ruffles, ribbons, lace, frills; however you want to interpret the challenge!

Enter using the Linky Tool at The Altered Alice by Friday, April 27. All entries are welcome but Alice in Wonderland entries are encouraged and will receive two chances at the drawing instead of one. Multiple entries are great but each must be on a separate post.

The design team is so excited about showing off the brand new Wonderland Perfectly Clear™ Stamps from our sponsor, Stampendous (Website | Blog). This Alice is all dressed up from her shining shoes to the top of her hat, not to mention her frilly parasol! We will have THREE winners this month, and they will each receive the same Wonderland stamp set the design team is using!

My card this month is farley simple but I like the victrian feel of it.  I first stamped Alice on a pale pink card stock, then again on cream.  The cream pieces were cut with a Spellbinders die.  I used foam tape to pop them up.
I used vintage lace along with some embelishments to decorate each square.  I find the best vintage lace at yard sales and junk markets. 

So get out there and show us your Sunday best! Enter by Friday, April 27 here.
