Vintage Winter Wonderland Arches

Hello to you all, and happy Monday! I love the Gothic Arch shape and I also think it's fun to make cards in a different format every now and then. Today and tomorrow I'm posting two different sets of wintery Gothic Arches.

The images are from napkins decoupaged on mixed media background. I added some almost invisible vellum snowflakes and structure paste for snow effect on the borders, and gave the finishing touch with red Stickles and some tartan patterned ribbon. The size of these is 4x6 inches, as in postcards, but with the arch shape.

I'm linking to the following challenges:
Take a Word (Winter)
The Three Muses (Vintage Gothic Arch) and
P*skarteluhaaste #257 (Vellum) *en osallistu arvontaan!

Last weekend I got to enjoy the most beautiful snowy scenery, visiting my cousin just two hours north of metropolitan Helsinki, where I live. Here by the sea it's plain ugly, dark, wet and windy at the moment, but I'm confident there'll be a turn to better winter weather once we have passed Christmas. Or the sooner the better, of course!
