A Very Merry Belated Birthday

Growing up the movie Alice In Wonderland was one of my favorites and I especially loved the Mad Hatter.  I'm serious, what other Disney character could be that crazy and get away with it?  I know I couldn't.  In fact, the last time my family was at Disneyland here in California, the Mad Hatter poured my tea at Goofy's Kitchen from 1' foot off the table and didn't spill a drop!  Now how's that for talent?  So when MFT came out with the set Costumes In Wonderland by Stephanie Fizer I knew I had to get it. 

Unfortunately, the set sat uninked for a few months thanks to my migraine issues.  I finally got around to stamping with it and decided to pair it up with some Prima Marketing Nursery Rhyme designer paper since the background print is also Alice In Wonderland.  Cool huh?

I let the designer paper choose the coloring of the image and layers.  Pulling out some retired Stampin Up! cardstock and pairing that with MFT's white Perfect Panels, I stamped the Mad Hatter (of course) in memento tuxedo black ink and colored with prismacolor markers again allowing the designer paper to choose my colors.  After adding some MFT baby brads, popping up on dimensionals, and adding some Prima Nursery Rhyme ribbon, my card was finished.  Here's a close up of the image.
