Gothic Arches: 'Flourishes'

Phew - only just made it before Sunday morning and the change of theme!!! (Wipes brow!)

I've been so busy this week but as I was supposed to be tidying my craft room/office I suddenly had inspiration for this week's Gothic Arch challenge, the theme of which is 'Flourishes'.

So, here is my entry and I'm sorry it's only just in time but better late than never.

The beautiful image of the woman is from Heyjupiter21 at Flikr, the dragonfly wings are from Enchantedgal, the flowers are from a Crafty Individuals stamp (see recent post for link to CI), the word stamp is by Paper Artsy, the dotty border is from a polymer set of borders by Lakeland Plastics and I printed the background onto vellum from an Artylicious CD called Fligree Fusion by Glenda Waterworth at Elusive Images (link also in a recent post - my brain hurts with all these links!!)

Finally the all-important Flourishes come from a set in polymer by Rhonna Farrer at Autumn Leaves, called 'Elegant Flourishes'.

I could NOT resist adding some glitter glue to the wings and flower centres to give it that enchanted look I feel it deserves.
