Alice said “Can Flowers Talk?”

CHAPTER 8: You can learn a lot of things from the FLOWERS...

`Never mind!' Alice said in a soothing tone, and stooping down to the daisies, who were just beginning again, she whispered, `If you don't hold your tongues, I'll pick you!' 
There was silence in a moment, and several of the pink daisies turned white. 
`That's right!' said the Tiger-lily. `The daisies are worst of all. When one speaks, they all begin together, and it's enough to make one wither to hear the way they go on!' 
`How is it you can all talk so nicely?' Alice said, hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment. `I've been in many gardens before, but none of the flowers could talk.'

Hello everyone!  What a sweet, sunny sign of Spring it is when all of our floral friends come out to play!  At the Oh, Alice! Blog, we definitely agree with Alice that you can learn a lot of things from the flowers!  This week's challenge?  You got it!   USE FLOWERS on your card or project! Here is my card using the Re-Released digi set Wonderland from The Greeting Farm. I used the Alice image from the set.

Alice-4

For my card I used Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge TESC108.

We have ANOTHER generous prize to give away this week!  We at Oh, Alice are just floored at the outpouring of generosity from these wonderful companies and are thrilled to announce that this week's prize is being donated by STAMPOTIQUE!

(they sell rubber stamps and other goodies :)   Good luck, and we'll announce the winner during next week's challenge, so get those entries in by Friday, April 16th at 8pm CST!    Make sure you link your creation here to Mr. Linky and use OAC8 as your keyword when uploading to a gallery.  Thanks!
