Alice in Wonderland, no make that New York

This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for today's card.

After tidying up the garden in the gorgeous sunshine I retired to my craft room and managed to get two layouts of New York made. One is very symmetrical and tidy and this one is grungy and distressed. The photo is of a bronze statue of Alice in Wonderland and friends in Central Park. I've sanded, distressed and used DI Vintage Photo on the edges and with a Crafty Sentiments stamp. I've added some seam binding, lace and staples to the HOTP papers. The clock die and alphabet are Tim Holtz, the sign and lamppost dies are Marianne Designs. The clock topper is from Crafty Individuals and the clock charm which I added to the sign is from a Cinderella set I bought from EBay.
