Gothic Arches ..... Birthstone


The first theme of 2010 at Gothic Arches is "Birthstone" --- the challenge is to create an arch based on our birthstone and/or the color of the stone.  My birthstone is the turquoise, so I've created a faux turquoise stone to embellish my turquoise and gold arch. (Click on the image for a closer view.) The darling little image is from DezinaWorld.
