Kraftin' Kimmie challenge- use something old....and an Alice challenge

Ahhh...it's finally Gabrielle's turn to come out to play. Don't tell the other folks but she tells me they saved the best for last. I am talking for Gabrielle as she is a little hoarse from playing a long wild game of croquet. It's also time for our weekly challenge and it is to use something old from your stash. To me old means as soon as the bag gets placed in my craft room and I am lusting after my next purchase tee hee. Who's with me, right ladies!!! I used some of my old SU paper from a 6x6 pack. With the release of Alice in Wonderland with the INCREDIBLE Johnny Depp (again- who's with me ladies!) I wanted to do the card in black, white and red in honour of a deck of cards. The croquet game in the book just blew my mind as a child. Speaking of Alice....(nice segue Andrea lol) a stamping friend of mine Jessica ( one of my craft crushes :) has a new challenge blog focused on Alice inspired challenges. This week is a colour challenge and you can click here to go see the inspiration. I will admit it was out of my comfort zone completely but once it was all pulled together I really like it, I hope you do too.
