Oh, Alice! Challenge 2 - A Sketch

Good morning!!! and a happy Saturday to you all :)
It's time to get extra scrappy!!!

Oh, Alice! Challenge 2 -
CHAPTER TWO: Running in a SKETCHY circle...

"Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat.
"I don’t much care where..." said Alice.
"Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.

We have a fabulous sketch challenge today!!!

Here is the sketch:

Yes, I know... sigh... I accidently flipped the sketch!
