Gothic Arches -- Weddings


The Gothic Arch challenge this week gave me a chance to use a new arch stamp I bought at convention.  It's from Stamp Camp.   I stamped it on a background painted with gold Mica paints.   I then cut it out to use as my background for this wedding card.   I also added a vintage image I cut out from my stash of  '50s wedding cards.  Finally, I attached some gold leaf flowers from Making Memories and a rub-on sentiment.
