Curious Little Challenge Blog - We're All Mad Here / Crazy 4 Challenges - Kraft Stock / Stamp With Fun - Recipe 3 papers 3 flowers 2 buttons

For my card I used the fabulous Digi Image from Spesch. Of course it's the Mad Hatter. I am such a Tim Burton fan and the new Alice movie with my darling Johnny Depp was a killer for me. I'm going back this week to see it again, only this time I'm going alone, no kiddies, and I'm going early enough that I don't have to sit in the first row. I used my Magnolia paper that has been sitting since last summer. It was perfect for this card. I used some sugar coated brads, and some Papertrey black ribbon.

Over at The Curious Little Blog they are doing cards this week that are monochromatic and distressed. I chose my Mad Hatter in the greys and blacks. My paper had white around some of the edges, so I used my white ink pad and rubbed it along the rest of the edges to give it a distressed look.

At Crazy 4 Challenges they want you to make a card using Kraft Card Stock, so that was the base of my card.

Finally at Stamp With Fun they have a great recipe, 3 papers, 3 flowers, and 2 buttons. I added my buttons on the inside of the card so it would fit this challenge. Hope everyone is enjoying their Monday. In Canada it is our Easter Monday. Most businesses are open except the Post Offices, Government offices, and the kids are home from school. We are expecting some rain today.
