gothic arches: for the birds


The theme at Gothic Arches is for the birds. I recently received a couple of nest stamps from Inka, the larger of which fits inka's large bird perfectly (the small one, incidentally, fits one of the eggs)
all the papers are offcuts of basic grey paper. And I've even used a fiskars border punch which has been sat in my drawer ever since I won it in a competition a couple of years ago! I quite like its effect here.
