Follow the white rabbit.....

I can't believe it - my eldest daughter is going to be 12 this year - in around 7 days to be exact.  Her last year before she becomes a teenager!  Well I figured I could go to pieces or throw a big bash to celebrate.  I chose the later.  She's invited some of her closest friends to a tea party on the weekend and we decided to  theme her invites with Alice in Wonderland!  I had so much fun with this.  I found the perfect papers, matched them with some images I found online, some washi tape and some really neat embellies and voila - the invites came together just as I imagined.  So lets take a close look

First up we have the jar, I found these at Earthborn and they were having a 50% off sale!  Then I wrapped them in some washi tape and added some tags.  The one on the left was cut from a sheet of cardstock, the one on the left is an image printed off Google Images and I distressed the edges.  The papers I have used for this project are Graphic 45 "Ladies Diary" and "ABC Primer" both have lovely vintage looks about them, with typing and some clocks.  I added a key charm to the tags as it's a focal feature of the movie.
The rosettes were created with the papers, then I added a black ribbon bow and a small rose.
Inside each jar is the invite.  I added an image of the Queen of Hearts and used the Alice in Wonderland font.  There are also tiny diamentes.  I also created a folded playing card, with a cupcake and "very Alice" tag labelled "eat me".  The blue and purple wood curls are scented and sit in the bottom of the jar on a bed of faux grass.  On the back of the invite is an image of Alice and details of the party.
I have also entered into these challenges:
