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!   We may never know the answer to the riddle above, but while we're pondering that and life's little mysteries we may as well make a great card or two in the process, right?

I used the incredible Melody Ross's "Brave Girl" stamp set from UNITY to make this card-"Born to Fly".  I LOVE the vintage birdcage look and it's all the rage right now!

I want to THANK ALL of you for the super sweet bday wishes yesterday-I am truly touched by your sweet messages and can really say y'all know how to make a girl feel GOOD.   I had a WONDERFUL day with my family and I'm so lucky to be living this LIFE!   I am TRULY Blessed and grateful beyond words for ALL of it!!!

Be sure to visit Oh, Alice for this week's samples by the lovely and talented DT...and my sweet friends from every corner of the globe:
 
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!!!

What a perfect image for this challenge! I love birdcages but don't have any yet! This was such a great Unity kit, wish I had picked it up. This card is so elegant with the tone-on-tone color scheme, but my favorite detail is the little bow on top of the button centering the larger bow! Love that! And Jess - you WERE born to FLY!
