My " Buttons " Gothic Arch

Hi, well after making such a stupid mistake about what days things have to be posted in challenge sites by, I thought that I had better get my "Buttons" gothic arch posted today in case that goes wrong as well !

I had a great time making this arch, it's 5 1/2" tall which is the tallest I have made so far for the challenge site, the background is from a scrapbook paper, with inked edges, the pattern piece is stamped on tissue paper, the little buttons in the right hand corner are also stamped to tissue, the piece with the lady is taken from a dress pattern packet that is many, many years old. stamped words, lace, and the scissors are brads and of course the Buttons to finish off this arch.

I am very surprised at the brads that you can buy these days it seems to be anything and everything is turned in to a brad, which is great !
