Oh, Alice! is Gettin' Sketchy...

"Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips, and the sun is like a toy balloon.
There get up in the morning glories, in the golden afternoon.
There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside, strings of violets are all in tune,
Tiger lilies love the dandy lions, in the golden afternoon,
the golden afternoon.
There are dog and caterpillars and a copper centipede,
where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life they lead... "

Hey everyone!
Oh, Alice has a wonderful Sketch for you today designed by our very own Jen Shults! Our sketch comes with just a small twist this week....
Ok, its HUGE!

ONE PLAYER will be chosen this week based on all of the entries... (and we know it's going to be TOUGH!!!) to be our...
That's right! The DT will be feverishly going through your creations to choose next month's Guest DT, so if you've been wanting to come and be our Guest at our totally TWISTED Tea Party, now is your chance!

The Oh,Alice! contest will be open until THURSDAY May 26th at 11:59 PM CST (please notice the earlier time limit this week just so we can have time to go over entries, contact the winner, and announce them by our next Challenge on the 28th!) to enter your creation.

Here is my card!!!

I drew some major inspiration from 4 different places for my card :)
First, Jen's sketch tweaked just a bit to fit everything ;)

Then! Randi (Dark Mermaid) reminded me of THIS awesome paper that I had "borrowed" from my lil sister and have been holding onto forever!!! And I do admire Randi's coloring sooo much! I just had to give my lil sprout, Ebony, some awesome pink hair :)

Next! Ever since I landed on THIS blog post by fellow DT member, Kristy (Delicious Papercrafting), I have been in love with her style and her use of - doilies!!! I just purchased a few packets of doilies today, so I just had to add one in - or at least half of one, lol!

And fourthly! To finish my card off! The Burtonesque Dolls Challenge #3 - Use black flowers and skulls on your project! The perfect finishing touches ;)

Thank you ALL sooo much for helping me out!!!
