Alice in Wonderland Card

This card was inspired by a challenge over at The Outlawz. For the Friday Coloring Challenge this week, the theme is "Alice in Wonderland." There are loads of digital Alice in Wonderland stamps out there, but I settled on this one from Digital Stamp Design both because it was free (can't beat that!) and because I just love this scene.

I downloaded it and sized it up in my Silhouette Design Studio software then printed it out. I colored it with Copics and MEXPY markers, cut it out and matted it on red cardstock. I used a black glitter cardstock for the card base, scored it so it had a side fold, and planned out the other elements of the card. I thought the scene warranted a humorous sentiment, so I used a rubber stamp I've had for years that I've never had the right occasion to use. I stamped out the sentiment on the matching red cardstock from the matting I used for the digi, cut it out with my paper cutter and then adhered both image and sentiment with foam squares. After that, I added a couple crowns cut from Spellbinders Nested Crown die set that I cut and embossed on my Cuttlebug and then a couple hearts from a Papertrey Ink die set (Envelope Zipper die).
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
