Lets get Shabby Challenge 9

Do we ever have a Wonder(ful) challenge for you!!

Not only is the criteria tough (please read rules carefully) but the DT samples are mind blowingly awesome!!

1) Create a Shabby Garden on your project.

2) Include a quote from the book Alice in Wonderland.

note: as gardens are usually full of a mix of flowers you will need to include at least 5 flowers.

You don't have to base your creation on the actual story but if you like there is a wonderful website full of inspiration here: Alice in Wonderland

I finally used my freebie stamp from craft stamper for the tag.
My garden/rose bush is quite small but I packed the page with loads of reference to Alice in Wonderland...I used a page from the book and highlighted some of the words. I did this by printing the page from the net, staining it and gluing on a second copy of white (un-stained) words over the original ones. There is a bunch of keys, a mirror and lots of hearts and crowns. The miniature playing cards are the soldiers from the book that look like cards.
OMG this new challenge is sooooo exciting!!!!! I do hope you will join us HERE

Love and wickedness
