Oh, Alice! Chapter 31: Fighting for the CROWN...

`Why the Lion and the Unicorn, of course,' said the King.
`Fighting for the crown?'
`Yes, to be sure,' said the King: `and the best of the joke is, that it's my crown all the while! Let's run and see them.' And they trotted off, Alice repeating to herself, as she ran, the words of the old song: --
`The Lion and the Unicorn were fighting for the crown:
The Lion beat the Unicorn all round the town.
Some gave them white bread, some gave them brown;
Some gave them plum-cake and drummed them out of town.'

Happy Saturday, everyone!
Today, at Oh, Alice!, we have a wonderful challenge today and a prize at stake from The Mad Hatter herself! Jessica will be giving away an {Ippity} prize pack of stamps plus a nice array of 6x6 designer paper to ONE lucky winner this week who is "Crowned" by!

Speaking of crowns, THAT's this week's challenge, brought to you by our very own Twisted Sis Sammi: Use CROWNS and/or MYTHICAL Creatures
on your card or creation today!

Here's my "crown-ing" card :)

Have you heard the news???
Ever since The Queen of Hearts was knocked down from her ruling, she is slowly losing her pigment and is now more pink then red ;) No more red roses, tarts nor hearts of any kind for her... well, maybe just pink hearts ;)

The background image I used was found on this site HERE...
my queen is The Greeting Farm's "Hallo Bride" Digital Image...
Papertrey Ink Cardstock, for the strip of Prima DP I used my MFT Open-scalloped Die-namic, and the I added some misc Gems from a Pink Ninjas kit :)

Here's some mystic madness brought to you by the Twisted team:
Jessica {The Mad Hatter} -
Kellie {Sept. Guest} -

That's some ROYAL work, huh?
Be sure to upload your card or creation to the Oh, Alice Blog using InLinkz by Friday, September 24th to be eligible to WIN the {Ippity} prize pack!

Have a very regal day in WONDERLAND!

Margie, Bravo on the original Tenniel illustration for the background! You have raided my source, LOL, I get most of my images from Lenny's! Love your pink story, and the way you fit a crown onto the pink bride! Also love the way you colored her hair, it blends it in like it is part of the crown! WONDERful card, I love it!
