Moving Along With The Times 'Alice Inspired' Challenge

Good morning all, I hope the weather is being kind to you where ever you are.

Today see's the start of a new challenge over at Moving Along With The Times and this week Hazel set us the challenge of 'Alice Inspired' so that means anything to do with Alice In Wonderland, easy eh? Well I am sure it will be for some of you but I really struggled with it.  This week we are sponsored by Digi My World who gave us some great images to play with. 

I decided I wanted to go with the image of the White Rabbit and use it as a belated birthday card but I couldn't get it to come together. I know I have some paper somewhere with clocks on but can I find it, oh course I can't. So I had the idea to make my own, I used the pocket watch image and put several of them on the page and made a collage of them in all different directions. I then printed this onto a piece of backing paper that went with my other papers I am using. Once I had this the rest of the card all went together really quickly, in fact too quickly as I was going to ink the edges but stuck too bits of paper down before I remembered!!
