Gothic Arch

This arch comes from sheer determination. You would think that "home" would be an easy challenge idea. And yet I think this is my fourth try. I could just not get my arch to come together and it got to the point where I wasted so much paper and time on this challenge between yesterday and this morning that I just refused to give up. So here is what I finally came up with before I said "uncle."
I used images from Collage Visions (house and children).
