Quirky Crafts 2011: Challenge 5 - Alice in Wonderland

This week I chose Alice in Wonderland for our Quirky Crafts Challenge. We want you to base your craft project on the book Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Caroll, and if you don't know the book or it is an ancient memory as it was for me try putting it in Google, you will find lots of images and the story too, Wikipedia has the best and original info on the characters.
Check the Quirky blog for some great examples to inspire you. The challenge this time is sponsored by the lovely Stamping Boutique, and if you are the DT choice overall winner you will be able to choose some really nice images as your prize.
I haven't used the sponsor's images in this card, I hope to make another soon using some of the images, but the other team members have used them and we have a great sample from our sponsor.
I used two stamps from a set by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie, which I have been itching to use. I coloured the images with Promarkers, and die cut a branch for the Cheshire cat to sit on. I copied the relevant passage from the book, found online, printed it out on vellum paper and distressed it, and stamped Birthday Wish from  a set by Debbi Moore.
The pocket watch is a button from a set in my stash. I am not totally happy with the finished card, not quite sure if I should have used a different colour card or a mat as the background, but I thought patterned paper would be too busy for this one.

Do you like the grin that Alice is looking at?
