Wonderland Birthday

One of my older sisters (I have 5), Perrin, is having a birth day at the end of May when I will be in China, so I made her card now and will hopefully get a chance to see her in a few weeks to give it (and her gifts) to her. She, like me, has always been an avid reader, and I know that Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll) is one of her favorites. Who wouldn't like Jabberwocky? A poem so full of nonsensical words that it makes me giggle to read it. A few words that he invented and used in that poem have even been added to the dictionary! How fun is that?
Anyway, he also wrote Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, which is where this card comes in. I have a small collection of Alice stamps from Stamp Francisco and just knew I wanted to use one on my sister's card.


SUPPLIES: PP by Basic Grey, CS by SU and Bazzill, Ribbon from SU, image stamp from Stamp Francisco, sentiment stamp unknown, rough texture wheel by SU also, ink is Ranger and SU, Charm is MM, Prismacolor pencils, white gel pen.

That's beautiful, and the background is great. (You know how I like stripe-ed-y stuff.) She'll love it!

Dana, I love this card! I think I have one Alice stamp and I'm not sure if it has ever seen ink-gasp! I just wasn't too sure what to do with it. The PP has so many yummy colors. Great Job! I know your sister will love it!
