Okay, so today you get a 2fer. Meaning 2 challenges for the price of one. I really didn't intend it to be, but I think it's gonna turn out that way. 2 weeks ago the Oh Alice! Chapter 4 challenge was a beautiful sketch by DT member Pam Varnell. However, there wasn't a specific deadline (for me, that's death because I'm such a procrastinator). I fully intended to do it but it was a busy week last week sooo... Anyway, this week the Chapter 5 challenge is to use a caterpiller or BUTTERFLY on your card. Now I do have a caterpiller image that I've even colored for this week's challenge, but I seem to have lost it under the piles of crap I have laying all over this craft room so in the interest of time, I'm submitting this card for BOTH of the challenges. If I manage to find the image in time and can whip out another card I will. The sweet, innocent Alice image is from Mo Manning called Alice in pencil. I first saw it on my friend Barb's blog (she always has the coolest stuff) and of course I rushed right over and bought it. The sentiment is from Sassy Studio Designs. DP is from that gorgeous Heidi Grace stack I've been using lately and the frame is cut on my Cricut from the Sentimentals cartridge (first time using it! woohoo!) The BUTTERFLIES are a MS punch (honestly I feel like I'm cheating but I could have used my Cuttlebug Spot card with butterflies but I like to keep it "Alice" related)
Here's the dimensional view. the card is 6 x 6. The round aperture is cut with my Nesties, I embossed the frame with Swiss dots, and added a few adhesive pearls. I really love how soft the whole effect is.
