Look what I got in mail today

I'm a member of Creative Souls but haven't played in the ATC swaps for a long time. Noticed there was an Alice In Wonderland themed swap for June_July and decided to play. My partner goes by the name of Ivy Gurl and is from Canada. She sent me the lovely card above. With all the confusion around here, the caption, "Escape reality" was perfect! I'd forgotten what a delight it is to receive little pieces of art in the mail. Sure brought a smile as I opened Ivy's envelope. My scan doesn't do it justice. The colors are subtle and peaceful. The mirror is silver foil and she added golden Dresden crown and trim, plus glitter on the wings. Love it! Will happily trade with Ivy Gurl any time. I don't think my entry has reached her yet. I created a digital trio of cards that I accordian folded. I had wanted to decoupage copies of the major element to give some diminsion but soon released they were too small. I've been collecting Alice scrapkits, planning to make an altered Alice book. I used pieces from kits by the following designers to create my cards: Bits 'n Bobs, Designs by Ginger, Miss Honey, Natashas NaSt_Designs, and Scrapper's Delight.
More later - headache coming on!
