Gothic Arches challenge "Gold"

The challenge this week over on Gothic Arches was "Gold" create a Gothic Arch using gold

so here's my take on the challenge.



I used Basic grey paper for backing (no surprises there LOL) printed and cut a flapper image (don't ya just love those images) i added a different piece of paper at the top then added a piece of brown ribbon , inked round my image to add a bit of depth then added foam pads to the back and stuck it on my arch so she stands outs. i wrote the words worth her weight in GOLD on a strip of paper cut it into strips and inked the edges and stuck it on , added a GOLD key at the bottom and a GOLD plaque at the top which says Dream , then went round the edges of the Arch in GOLD krylon pen.
