Lost in Wonderland!

This little Alice card was originally made for a challenge and to be posted on the 14th.  Alas!  I tried all day to get it posted here, but Internet Explorer kept shutting down everytime I was I didn't make it for the challenge.

The card actually does not say anything about Valentine's Day, so could be used for any other occasion.  I was given an Alice in Wonderland deck of cards as a gift and have loved using them in my artwork.  I edged the card with a brown inkpad.  I also cut out the doilies from a doily placemat (from my friend Pat in England......thank you, Pat!).  I used my sewing machine to sew on the doilies and the playing card.  I hand cut the hearts and used my Pilot Parallel Pen to try my hand a calligraphy............and I say "try my hand" because I am a beginner calligrapher.  I edged all the hearts with a red inkpad.  To finish off the card, I added the gold trim (also a gift from Pat).  I'm going to try to submit this to the blog:  The Altered Alice.  If you are a lover of all things "Alice", you must visit this blog.  There are some wonderful pieces of art to behold on this blog...........go on!  get over there and have a look.  ")
