Chapter 7: We're all M.A.D here!

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here..."

This week, we are gettin' our M.A.D on with THE GREETING FARM!! The sweet and generous Marie has generously offered her new line of Alice-inspired stamps, The Creepy Cakes to the DT and a FABULOUS prize of THREE FREE Creepy Cakes Digital Images OR ONE Rubber Single to ONE LUCKY WINNER! Thanks Marie!

We're also MAD about our APRIL TEA PARTY GUEST! Please join us in welcoming Kim Howard, a.k.a. BASEMENT STAMPER to our Twisted Tea party this month! She's been curiouser and curiouser to get started and we're happy to have her at our twisted little table :)

Here is my card... I did mostly ink distressing and my Monochromatic colors were of course blacks!  I thought she's just too perfect for BLACK!  The DP is from Coordinations'.  The Metal mesh from Making Memories and I distressed that as well!  I stamped grey toned skullies on the flower and made the center of the flower with the same skully!  Hope you enjoy looking at this card as much as I enjoyed making it!  


Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come up with your OWN M.A.D. creation: Monochromatic and Distressed! And remember, one lucky winner will be randomly drawn at the end of this week to win the THREE CREEPY CAKES OR their choice of single (in-stock!) RUBBER STAMP! You have until Friday, April 9th at 8pm CST to enter using Mr. Linky. The winner will be chosen and announced during next week's challenge on the blog! If you upload to a public gallery please link back to Oh, Alice using keyword OAC7.

Thanks, good luck, and GO M.A.D.!
