Gothic Arches .... Open Theme

This double arch for Gothic Arches this week was a big project for me:  I knew what I wanted to do, but I wasn't certain how to do it!  As it turned out, I used up an entire 12x12 piece of the lime green cardstock before I succeeded in getting the arch I needed.  The little girl is from Chicks57's Vintage Photos Flickr site.

Very nice job with this one, E! Inventive arches, too. Must have been "fun" trying to make them match. The little girl is adorable, and the flower works great with her. Denise B.

Silly Evelyn, your Cricut with Sure Cuts Alot would have done those arches lickety split! :0)

Beautiful arches and colour combi. If I'm not confident about a shape I practice on cheap copy paper 1st, then use the 1 I like as a template. that way your fav papers last longer.
love as always Gina x x x
