Gothic Arch/Sunday Stampers - Garden Sprite/On the Wings of Love

I've decided that this arch works well for both the Gothic Arch challenge as well as Sunday Stampers this week. I pictured this very contemplative and lovely sprite standing in a garden of flowers. I used real pressed flowers adhered to the piece with beeswax. The background is a piece of scrapbook paper with stamped tissue on top of it.
