CHAPTER 23: Ravens and Writing Desks...

The Hatter opened his eyes very wide on hearing this; but all he said was, "Why is a raven like a writing-desk?"
"Come, we shall have some fun now!" thought Alice. "I'm glad they've begun asking riddles. — I believe I can guess that," she added aloud.
"Do you mean that you think you can find out the answer to it?" said the March Hare.
"Exactly so," said Alice.
"Then you should say what you mean," the March Hare went on.
"I do," Alice hastily replied; "at least--at least I mean what I say--that's the same thing, you know."

Hello everyone! We are ready to FLY with this week's challenge here at Oh, Alice! This week, we challenge you to use BIRDS on your card or papercrafting project!

I think this card shows you have a pretty good handle on CAS!!! What a GREAT image (or combo of images?) I just love it! Anytime you start with kraft card stock I think you are on the right track! The punched edge and crystals are the perfect details, and that B&W gingham ribbon adds such a nice pop of bold contrast! WONDERful!
