A very merry Un-birthday to youuuuu!

The challenge over at Tiddly Inks this week has had me singing this tune in my head for days! The challenge was to make a birthday card, but as Christy wished everyone a happy un-birthday, I just had to do an Alice inspired card, using of course, the Alice and the Mad Hatter images...

The images have been coloured with ProMarkers, I've tried to follow the colours from the film (the original Disney cartoon, not the wierdo Tim Burton one...which I've still not seen) and the papers are from Kirsty Wiseman - perfect for a Mad Hatter's Tea Party! The whole card is possibly a bit too bright, but then surely that's in keeping with the theme?! Oh, and I've even Glossy Accented the watch, though you can't see it here.

My next card tonight is simplicity itself...

The butterfly is from a wooden dangly ornament thingy (descriptive) from Paperchase, sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer. The papers are Kirsty's again, the middle bit is cut with a Nestabilities Die. Yes, I've joined the 21st century, binned off my ten tonne original Sizzix machine and got a Cuttlebug, well done me.

If you're interested in a cyber crop, Kirsty has another one going this Wednesday, there is now a Facebook group you can join and upload your photos to - come and join us - there's prizes too!
