Meeting the challenge for Three Muses

"Doors" are appearing on the Three Muses blog this week, and I haven't participated in one of their challenges for quite some time.  My scene was an enjoyable process for me today; there are no digital images--everything was cut and pasted-- but the final piece was manipulated with the artistic filter, 'poster edges,'  on Adobe Elements to  bring it all together.

The cathedral door is a photograph I found online; the woman is a free image from Magic Moonlight and the perfume bottles are freebies from Artsy Fartsy's Flickr site.   I stamped and embossed the leaves and then applied an edge around the whole piece with a metallic gold pen.
