Quixotic DT

Sorry this post is up so late! :( Incase you didn't know.. I made it onto the Quixotic DT. See THIS post. I don't know about the other girls.. but I still feel a little giddy when I think about it! LOL.

I still cannot believe Elaine chose me. Seriously. I am Over. The. Moon.

Here is a card I've made with the last lot of goodies I ordered from Quixotic a few weeks ago now. I had to get my little mits on some new Halloween yumminess. :)

So, if you could think of this as my 'introductory'/ 'celebratory' card! LOL!


I have used some gorgeous papers from the new MME Mischievous 6x6 paper pad. I've distressed and doodled the edges of my paper as always. The sentiment from Hero Arts has been embossed in white onto black cardstock, I then created a banner shape and used dimensional adhesive to create some movement.

I have stamped the cute yet scary White Rabbit from Octopode Factory in Pumpkin Pie ink from SU! onto Bazzill Kraft cardstock. I actually love these images. This particular one is from the Alice In Wonderland collection. Check them all out HERE.

The flowers are from WOC and the little blue button is from Basic Grey Sweet Threads collection - I picked it esepcially to pick up on the blue lines in the patterned paper. ;) Smart.

Here is a shot of the inside of the card. I used some of the scraps of patterned paper alongside White Rabbit's Pocket Watch stamp. Again stamped in Pumpkin Pie onto Kraft and fussy cut out.

Hope you likey.
