Gothic Arch

With the theme of "grunge" at Gothic Arches this week, my mind immediately went to Stampers Anonymous.
I first stamped the arch image from Stampington on heavy manila cardstock and then covered it with distress inks. The word "serendipity" is from SA. I stamped my little girl from SA on cardstock and cut her out before adding her to the arch.
The circle is on acetate and that is actually the packaging from the clear stamp which goes with it. I added that with two brads on the side.
The crown is grungeboard from Tim Holtz -- you knew there had to be some of that
on there!
