Steampunk Alice Halloween Card with Halloween in Wonderland

Steampunk Alice Halloween Card for Frilly and Funky Vintage Halloween Challenge

Hello, Friends!  What happens when you combine Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland with a little steampunk vibe?  You  get a super fun  Steampunk Alice Card  which is just the ticket for the new challenge over at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  Zoe is our hostess this round, and the theme is Vintage Halloween.  Here are Zoe’s guidelines for the challenge:

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to get your witches hats on and create a project of your choice in a vintage style with a Halloween theme.

Steampunk Alice!


How fun is this?  The size of this card is huge because I fussy cut the focal image from the 12×12 Deluxe Collector’s Edition.  Standing 8.25″ tall, it has a cutaway front and is loaded with steampunk goodness.
