My first ever gothic arch


I've never tried a gothic arch before but the gothic arch challenge blog was just too tempting. The theme is moon. so this is what I've made. I hope you like it.

I am also entering this for saturday stampers, as it is based on a poem.

(in response to comments)
and according to my dictionary, shoon means shoes! it is the archaic plural of shoe. The quote is by Walter de la Mare


Slowly, silently, now the moon
Walks the night in her silver shoon:
This way and that she peers, and sees
Silver fruit upon silver trees.
