Alice has entered the building-Colour Create DT card-Karens choice-Alice in Wonderland photograph inspiration-Scroll down for Mo's Dreamteam blog hop

Right deep breath everyone because theres a lot of photos on this post...anyone who is here for the Mo's Dreamteam blog hop its just below if you would like to scroll down....ok we ready of we go....I love love loved this choice for our new Challenge at Colour Create...our wonderful Karen chose the photo of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in the new version of Alice in Wonderland and its a brilliant choice...I spent a whole day on this card and enjoyed every second of creating it...theres a few people I need to thank and give credit to...the pop up fold is amazing and I got it from a tutorial from the fantastically talented Tanya...here's her tutorial...and the curled sentiment idea came from a card the lovely Jane put on her blog a while back

isn't this image just perfect for this challenge shes from Spesch Designer stamps and is called Cheshire Cat (now what else would she be called)...the background I found on the net its a vintage black and white mushroom image which I coloured...the whole image is coloured with Distress inks, the fab papers are from Basicgrey Green at Heart range...

the spotted is called Jungle and the green is called Moss...I used a tape measure paper from the Cosmo Cricket Material girl paper pad, I threaded some pins with beads and coloured the white beads and heads with a copic pen

I think you can see the fold much better in this photo, the sentiments I printed on the computer and finished with a broad satin ribbon which I threaded the pins through...I would have put the inspirational photo on but thought Mr Blogger might have a nervous breakdown with one more and I didnt want to be responsible for that...I hope you like it and will scroll down for my Mo's Dreamteam blog hop post too, I promise it isnt as long...hop on over to the Colour Create Challenge blog and have a look at how different everyone's stunning work is...I cant wait to see what you all come up with...have a go its brilliant fun
right now you have had a look inside my mad hatters head enjoy the rest of your day everyone and thanks for sticking with me
