Alice in Wonderland - Sept 7 - Sept 13

Dispel the Monday blues with this Monday morning to Sunday night challenge.

Moderator: Ellie

Hello everyone and welcome to the first Monday of the Movie themed challenges. The challenge I have for you this week is to take inspiration from Alice's wish song in the animated movie "Alice in Wonderland". Musical 101 explains: "The Main "I Wish" Song comes early in the first act, with one or more of the main characters singing about the key motivating desire that will propel everyone (including the audience) through the remainder of the show.

The lyrics are to "A World of my Own":

"Cats and rabbits would reside in fancy little houses
And be dressed in shoes and hats and trousers
In a world of my own

All the flowers would have very extra special powers
They would sit and talk to me for hours when I'm lonely
in a world of my own

There'd be new birds lots of nice and friendly howdy-do birds
Everyone would have a dozen bluebirds
Within that world of my own

I could listen to a babbling brook and hear a song that I could understand
I keep wishing it could be that way
Because my world would be a Wonderland"

Find inspiration from the words to the song or even Alice or any of the characters she meets along her journey to create your card. For my example I went literal and made a card with Alice and the tea cups from the mad tea party. You of course do not have to do this but any inspiration you find in the lyrics to make your card. Let us know what inspired you. Have fun!

Oh Barry, your card is adorable! Since I have today off and I'm home (woot!), I'm going to go grab my coffee and see what I can come up with. Thanks for hosting!

Elaine, that's fantastic! The background paper is perfect for it, too.

I got started on an idea, but the coloring is going to take me forever. Hopefully I can get it all done.

I went with the second verse with the flowers (well I did just one flower)....I have a spider plant and I talk to it Vince thinks I'm looney when he hears me talking to it (I guess I'm in my own world when I do).....LOL
