"They don't keep this room so tidy as the other,' Alice thought to herself, as she noticed several of the chessmen down in the hearth among the cinders: but in another moment, with a little `Oh!' of surprise, she was down on her hands and knees watching them. The chessmen were walking about, two and two!

`Here are the Red King and the Red Queen,' Alice said (in a whisper, for fear of frightening them), `and there are the White King and the White Queen sitting on the edge of the shovel -- and here are two castles walking arm in arm..."
--Ch. 1: Through the Looking Glass

The challenge this week is again the brainchild of DT member Lynne-to use some aspect of the game of chess! You might want to use a checkerboard pattern, or feature a King, Queen, Knight or Castle (Rook), or some other aspect of the game we haven't thought of - we just need to be able to clearly see CHESS in your creation!

We are THRILLED to announce that there's a prize this week, too! Thanks to our generous sponsor, PAPER MANIAC, this week, they are giving away a set of Artistic Outpost Alice in Wonderland mini-stamps AND a sheet of E.A.D. Designs Stickerz! How awesome is that?

Here's some inspiration from the DT before we 'pawn' you off on your own to create this week:

This week I used last weeks gate fold, added Graphic 45 paper and a rosette, a bit of elastic ruffle. Just could not find the right saying, so I came up with my own. That's it pretty simple card.

Checkmate! Have YOU met your match? You have until FRIDAY, October 29th to enter your creation and throw your hat (or should I say, crown?) in the ring for this awesome PAPER MANIAC prize this week! We'll announce the winner her in Wonderland during our next challenge!
See you soon!

That skeleton is so adorable with his little black bow tie! Great Card!

Love your sentiment - it turned the whole card into a visual pun, gotta love that! I had to make up a sentiment as well to pull my card together! That rosette is fab and the skeleton is wonderful, despite being all bones! It is so funny, I came up with this challenge and even so was completely unprepared when the date came up. I started at 11:30 p.m. on Friday and came up with something completely different than what I'd imagined. Every member of the team has had a COMPLETELY different take on the challenge in an ultracool way!
