Wild and Reckless

We all know about Alice and her wild adventure in Wonderland.  When I saw this week's color inspiration at Summer of Color, I couldn't help but use this particular page from the Gecko Galz Wonderland ATC paper pack.   I enlarged it as the base of my card. 


I thought a black and white image of Alice fussy cut with a bit of white around the edge was a good contrast to the bold design on the paper.  I paired it with an equally simple handmade sentiment strip in black and white, using what I consider to be the perfect sentiment from Lizzy Ann Designs (American Art Stamp).  Both black and white pieces are up on foam pop dots for added dimension.  I'm very pleased that the photograph picked up the contrast so well.

I designed this card for this challenge:
