Chapter 4: Picturing Wonderland

"Thus grew the tale of Wonderland:Thus slowly, one by one,
Its quaint events were hammered out -And now the tale is done,
And home we steer, a merry crew,
Beneath the setting sun.

Alice! a childish story take,
And with gentle hand lay it were Childhood's dreams are twined.
In Memory's mystic band,
Like pilgrim's wither'd wreath of flowers
Pluck'd in a far-off land..."

We have another sketch Challenge today, this time brought to us by our very own Pam Varnell! Pam created this sketch JUST for the Oh, Alice! DT blog and it just reminds me of Wonderland itself!

Now here is this week's Sketch:

and my card...

My card uses a Fresh Brewed Designs image by the fabulous Heather. This mad hatter is colored with copics and paired with some Doodlebug glittery polka dot paper and Sassafrasslass.

Please join me on Monday, March 15th for a Fresh Brewed blog hop that will surely be a FUN time and be sure to check out the rest of the Oh, Alice DT.
