The Octopode Adventures of Alice

The Octopode Adventures of Alice Card
I just received some digis and collage sheets from the Octopode Factory and I love them. I could not wait to use this super digi of Alice. She was already colored but I added some more color with chalks. Alice is holding a little 3D book in her hand. In tiny print it says the book is illustrated by Lily Chilvers. Lily is the person who does the wonderful drawings for the Octopode Factory. She is so talented! Please take a look at the site and order some stamps from her.
The card is embellished with lots of turquoise rhinestones to give it some real sparkle. I also added a fabric bow for some added dimension.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

The Octopode - books
Pile it On - #39 fabric or felt
Simon Says Stamp and Show - sparkle
Paper Make up Stamps - #55 anything goes
The Paper Shelter - #83 anything goes
Through the Craftroom Door - #37 anything goes
Divas by Design - #54 fairies or fantasy
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - anything goes
Cupcake Craft - #211 fairy tales

Please take a look at the artwork supplied on these sites. The Design Team members work hard on their creations. You will be inspired to do some creating of your own.
