Gothic Arch

When I saw the theme this week at Gothic Arches was "mermaids," I figured I may have to skip this week. But since the site has been taking a break for a couple weeks already, I was needing my arch fix.
Then I spied this stamp from Stamp Oasis that I received as an RAK from Sandy over at 2Peas and had an idea.

She was easy enough to convert and I ended up liking this arch quite a bit. What's even better than that both DH and DS were both impressed with this arch!
