MMSC48 Alice in Wonderland Card

Hi Everyone ~ I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.  Our weather here is beautiful.  More like summer than spring, but it is going to go back to normal temps in the next few days.  It won't be long though before the warmer weather is here to stay. 

Have any of you seen the new movie out... "Alice in Wonderland"?  My daughter went to see it and loved it.  I have not seen the new movie, so I am still thinking back to the old one that I saw when I was younger, and that is what this card reminds me of.  I think my favorite character was the Cheshire Cat, but didn't you love when they went around trying to paint all of the flowers, and the Queen just kept saying:  "Off With Their Heads"? 

Did I bling this card out or what?  I decided to use just green and white, but with the pearls, gems, mirrored butterflies and fancy edging, I think it stands out pretty well.  

Congrats to our MMM and MMR winners this week:
