Sketch Saturday #307

It's Saturday and time for another great sketch at
and we are delighted to be sponsored by
Milk Coffee

I have to admit to having been a little frightened by Vannessa's fun sketch this week.  I wouldn't have been worried under normal circumstances (although admittedly - I do scare easily!) but, as per usual, I selected my image "Tiffany in the Wonderland" which you can find here BEFORE I looked at the sketch and then wondered how on earth I was going to incorporate her.  She was lovely to colour but I couldn't have managed it if I had made her small enough to fit beneath the banners so I simply cut her out and popped her on top of these perfect Graphic 45 "Halloween in Wonderland" papers.  The oversized sentiment on which Alice is meant to be standing is by PTI and I cut the bottle out of the same Graphic 45 papers using a Memory Box die before adding the cut out "poison" label.
Vannessa's super sketch has sooooo much potential so scooch some space on your craft table and come and play along with us.  And don't forget to stop by my teamies' blogs to say hi.  This is the last week that best matey, Julie, is going to be guest designing with us and I'm soooo grateful that she agreed to play along.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
A Creative Romance - who want us to use our scraps in their Scrappy Cards challenge
Aud Sentiments - Birthday sentiment or number 4
Charisma Cardz - Purple and Blue; and
