Gothic Arch - Gold


I'm starting to really look forward to these Sunday challenges at Gothic Arches. The arch is just such a neat shape to create on.
This week the theme was "gold." I'm not a poetry lover really, but the poem by Robert Frost immediately popped into my head, "Nothing Gold Can Stay." I remember reading it in high school English class and it just stuck out among the many we studied that year.
I created this arch by printing the poem onto gold glossy paper. Seems you can emboss right from a printer if you use glossy paper. So I was able to emboss the last line of the poem in gold.
I also gold embossed the leaves (Rubber Stampede) and vines (StampinUp). The birds (Crafty Secrets) are stamped on white cardstock and cut out.
