So come on over and play along this week with the Dolls.....ENJOY!!!!!!
My inspiration came from the movie Alice in Wonderland. I haven't seen the movie yet ( I know, I'm such a bad Doll) but I have watched movie clips and searched for photos for inspiration. I really loved how the Red Queen looked so I wanted to use her. I truly love this get up that she wears....not to mention "red" is my favorite color..... isn't she just so serious, not to mention punchy in the above photo....gotta love that hair....lol....I don't think I could have lived back in the Victorian age...they wore to many clothes and lived with no air conditioner....

this is the inside.....the quote I found on the net and I thought it really fit this photo...it looks like something that the Red Queen would think....lol....

.............................................................

Well that's all I have for now...make sure you stop over at TBD to see what the other Dolls made....and don't forget to come back by to check out my PaperTake Weekly challenge.......Have a great day...Hugs from Charm City.....

Gorgeousness! I really like the color scheme - very distressed too!
Nice inspiration picture. Helen Bonham Carter really stole the show as the Red Queen. You have to see it.

LOL! Love your inside sentiment!! ha ha!! I especially love her smile (snicker). Your coloring on her dress looks so distressfully cool. I also love all the nesties you used. Can't wait to get my boatload! LOL!

Holy cow! This is awesome. You have soooo many details on this I just don't know where to start. It's a stunning card. You really did a fantastic job tying this to Alice and I love the inside just as much as the outside... WOW!
