hahah thanx guys!

Alice is one of those movies/books that tends to stick with you as you grow up, everything starts to take new meanings but it's still just as good, if not better

That is too cool.  I have developed an obsession with everything Alice, and that light is spot on!  I don't think I have the dexterity to do something like that anymore Sad

since i didnt want to get in the frustration of cutting anything to thick (there would not have been as much detail for sure!) i just bought embossing craft metal. it's really thin....think 3 sheets of aluminum foil thick. i cut it with a sharp craft knife and it wasn't too bad. i think the thickness I bought was a little TOO thin, next time i'd go thicker.

I love it. It's perfect. One could almost use it with a night light.
