Gothic Arches - Birthstones



YEY - I made something and it's not Thursday!!

I love the challenges at Gothic Arches and really am going to make time to join in more. This week the theme is "Birthstones". My birthday is August and my birthstone is Peridot, which is a lovely vivid green. I had this Gemstones cardstock and it fit the bill perfectly. I made the inside panel with alcohol inks and some more of the cardstock.

Your arch is lovely and so special with doors that open. Like the quote very much too!

I really like how you made your arch a gated arch...one of these challenges I plan to do one. Very nice.

Hi Lynn,
I love the greens on this card and the shape is unusual which is a nice change. The hearts on the front are a great touch.
Hugs,

It's a lovely arch and the colours really are eye catching together. I love the way it opens up.
