CIC84 - Through The Looking Glass

Welcome! - I'm Late, I'm Late...
Did you all remember to set your Clocks back an hour?

So for this weeks Cupcake Inspiration we have these fun, whimsical Alice in Wonderland cupcakes to inspire you. 

We also have a wonderful sponsor:  Tiddly Inks.  Christy generously allowed the DT members to use 2 of their newest images for this weeks challenge.

Isn't "Alice" adorable!  Now I'm not so sure I captured the inspiration photo all that well but I do like my card. 

I'll admit this is one I "struggled" with.  Couldn't seem to find any paper related to the inspiration photo.  I did however come up with this piece (Nancy Jane Collection from http://www.adornit.com/) For some reason the bright flowers just reminded me of something you would see in Wonderland so I went with it even though it doesn't have any rabbits, Cheshire cats, mad hatters, etc...I colored Alice with my "limited" supply of Copic Markers.  Which I must also add I've not used very much and really need practice on using them so hopefully it doesn't look to bad.
I added some fun ric-rac and some lime sprinkles to complete my card.  Another thing, I left off a sentiment because quite frankly I just had no clue what to use on this card. (Suggestions anyone?)

Do check out what the other "Sweeties" came up with.  I'm sure they've done a fabulous job. 

Don't forget you can win a $10 Gift Voucher from Tiddly Inks so why not join in on the fun and create your own "Alice" inspired card.

Hi Ida- Your card is fabulous, and I adore that patterned paper! What about "You're Wonderful" for the sentiment? Have a great week! :)

This is so sweet and the paper works perfectly with your colour scheme! I don't think I would have any "time" oriented DP either!

I really like the great big print pattern paper on the diagonal it really is eyecatching! And she's so cute with her big clock and worried face!
