Gingham, Purple, Pink and a Chesire Cat

Hmm, what do those things all have in common?  Well, hee, hee..my card this week for  
Anyone for Anya and the Photo challenge!

I don't know but when i looked at the photo inspiration i saw that cute little doll sitting on the bed with gingham and pink yarn hair...so i thought of the Cheshire Bean from TGF because of the colors and i added the yarn to my card because of the yarn hair on the doll.  I know the photo looks more "shabby chic" but i went for the colors instead this time. :0)

Here is my card using Cheshire Bean from The Greeting Farm:
I did do some recycling on this card too, i used a page from an Alice in Wonderland book from the charity shop and yarn from my stash of yarn and the corrugated cardboard from a box.  The pink lace in the background is a Cheery Lynn die..and it makes beautiful lace.  The purple flower is from Michaels dollar bin.

Here is the inspirational photo:

So cute, Bonnie! Love that darling image, your fun coloring, the papers, and great design elements! (I keep forgetting to use my cardboard that I have stashed!) ;^)
Hugs, Penny

OK, I'm not sure how I feel about this card. It is just so NOT you, and isn't particularly to my taste. You did do a good job with your coloring, and I like some of the elements. Sorry, but you know I'm honest -- let's just say that I've seen so many other beautiful and wonderful cards from you that this one just isn't "doing it" for me.

Thanks so much for playing along with The Altered Alice! What a fun card, and a great Cheshire image! That lace die is super and your colors are great!
