Chester Says "Meow!"

Once again I find myself wondering, where are the days going? I can't believe April is half over! I have a super-quick post today as I seem to be running around late, late, late! Hmm, perhaps I should have featured a card with White Rabbit? Oh well, I guess I'd rather be busy than bored!

My card today features another Alice-inspired image from Busy Beauties Boutique called Chester Cheshire.

There's really not too much going on with this card other than some layers of Granola paper from BasicGrey in nature-inspired blues, browns, and creams (thanks Mary!) and a little sparkle.

I painted the chipboard flourish with acrylic paint called Nutmeg, and while it was wet, I sprinkled on some Brownstone glitter from Martha Stewart. A layered flower and some blue rhinestone bling finish it off. Meow!

And just a reminder that there’s still time to play the Alice Challenge at the Busy Beauties Creation Station blog. You have until April 21 to enter, then get ready for our new challenge and blog hop on April 22! You'll find lots of inspiration from the DT, and there will be prizes, of course!

Thanks for stopping by and have a stamptacular day!

I am *still* drooling over this one, Susan! It is AMAZING & ADORABLE!!!! I absolutely love the colors & papers you chose - I can totally imagine Chester lurking in the Wonderland foliage, and then pouncing upon Alice with his riddles! The chipboard looks FAB and I love how you added glitter to the paint!
This is such a stunner, and I know all of our Busy Beauties friends will be blown away! YGG!

Rrrrrrooooowww! Does Chester have it goin' on, or what!?! This is such a fun card, Susan! I love that flourish, and the way you layered the various colors of flowers. The little bit of sparkle just sets this wonderful image off! Beautiful work, my friend!

Love ya,
