Decided to enter this for the gothic arches challenge. I used *Taj Mahal* cardstock for the background arch. The figures have been stamped with Paper Artsy stamps using black archival ink, clear embossed, on gold cardstock. The figures have been cut out by hand, and *crowned* with party hats and a crown (Sizzix diecuts, as are the ballons). Added an embossed and distressed flower to finish it off. Was fun to make, although I'm not really sure if I got the subject right?
