Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #23

Hi everyone, hope you are all well? My neck and back are both feeling much better, so hopefully I'll now get the chance to spend more time crafting and blogging.
Now, as you all know I'm a Mo-aholic, but what with one thing and another, I don't seem to have entered many of her challenges lately.
I just about managed a card for the monthly Dream Team sketch challenge, but didn't think I'd get the DP2 challenge card made in time. Luckily, I finished it today, so quickly got DH to take a photo (bless him!) and I should just make it, as the new challenge is due on Thursday.

Card Details:
* Image - Mo's Digital Pencil Too - 'Alice in Pencil' & 'Late'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Jak Heath's Freebie Dots collection - 'Creme Anglaise' & 'Iced Blue'
* Punches - MS around the page 'Fanned Shell' & 'Garden Trellis' deep edge
                  & EK Success 'Retro Flower' (large and medium)
* Sentiment - Crafty Ann's Digi Shop - 'Tickets'
* Everything else from my stash

This week's challenge wanted us to use at least 3 punches on our project.
Whew! just about managed it, but it's harder than it sounds! Of course, I could have made life easier if I'd used a Nestability as a mat, but because I decided to use both of these 'Wonderland'  images I had nothing big enough! So, I had to cut both images out and mount them on some pearlised backing paper. I also found some 'sky' paper in my stash (don't ask, I have no idea!!) so popped this behind the little characters. Obviously, you can't see either of these things in the photo....why do I bother? LOL!

I'm hoping to whizz around and pay you all a visit in the next day or two, I'm so sorry I've neglected some of you for so long.
I also have DT Challenge Blog comments to make and a guest DT to choose, all of which should keep me busy and out of mischief for a while.

Chrissie, I love this! Great coloring and composition! All the new attention on Alice is terrific and I just finished reading the original stories --- not the Disney version. What an imagination!

I'm so glad you are able to get back to crafting and blogging.

Wowee, Chrissie, this is so fantastic.
I love the images - coloured perfectly, and that flower is magnificent.
The corner and border punches are a fab finish to this wonderful card.

I can see the things you think I can't Chrissie so it must be fantastic in real life. I adore the colour scheme, it's absolutely perfect for these lovely images.
