Oh, Alice! Chapter 28: Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow...

(taken from "Child of the Pure Unclouded Brow:
preface to "Through the Looking Glass")

Child of the pure unclouded brow

And dreaming eyes of wonder!
Though time be fleet, and I and thou
Are half a life asunder,
Thy loving smile will surely hail
The love-gift of a fairy-tale.

I have not seen thy sunny face,
Nor heard thy silver laughter;
No thought of me shall find a place
In thy young life's hereafter -
Enough that now thou wilt not fail
To listen to my fairy-tale.

Fun spin on the theme and that butterfly punch really seems to be flying off your perfect background DP!

That background paper is perfect, and I love the way you colored the image with that one POP of color on the flower, but the thing that really sends me and sets the tone for the whole card is that FAB ribbon!
