CHAPTER 14 Challenge: Splendidly Dressed! Week 2

"After a time she heard a little pattering of feet in the distance, and she hastily dried her eyes to see what was coming. It was the White Rabbit returning, splendidly dressed, with a pair of white kid gloves in one hand and a large fan in the other: he came trotting along in a great hurry, muttering to himself as he came, `Oh! the Duchess, the Duchess! Oh! won't she be savage if I've kept her waiting!'"-- Chapter 2; Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

April has arrived, which (in the northern hemisphere) brings thoughts of wearing your Sunday springtime best and perhaps donning an Easter bonnet! So we want to you to show us your Sunday best; ruffles, ribbons, lace, frills; however you want to interpret the challenge on the Altered Alice blog!
Enter using the Linky Tool on the Altered Alice Site by Friday, April 27. All entries are welcome but Alice in Wonderland entries are encouraged and will receive two chances at the drawing instead of one. Multiple entries are great but each must be on a separate post.
The design team is so excited about showing off the brand new Wonderland Perfectly Clear™ Stamps from our sponsor, Stampendous (Website | Blog). This Alice is all dressed up from her shining shoes to the top of her hat, not to mention her frilly parasol! We will have THREE winners this month, and they will each receive the same Wonderland stamp set the design team is using!

Stampendous made this
great blog blinkie for us,
grab it if you want!

Visit us on Twitter (@stampendous) and see our favorites on Pinterest.My Inspiration for you:
Here is Alice checking out her finery in the looking glass. The looking glass is made of metallic cardstock with the frame cut from wood paper with a Spellbinders die.

 This is a close up of Alice. I paperpieced her apron from gold metallic paper. The lace is embellished using a Viva Decor Glitter pen. I also added a feather in her hat. See how Daisy, her cat looks on. I love the checkerboard stamp floor.
 Here the white rabbit is holding up his watch to remind Alice that she should hurry up a bit.
 This is what the entire shrine looks like. Unfortunately, I had to scan it in order for the image not to be skewed. The mirror is metal cardstock. When you scan metal, you get black.
 Don't forget to add your challenge piece to the Altered Alice blog before Friday, April 27th. The prize is fantastic. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.
