Gothic Arches Challenge

Here is my gothic arch shrine for the challenge at Gothic Arches. I still feel new at projects with this shape and I'm not sure if my project is truly a shrine - I folded a dimensional box and used an arch shape on top - kind of a shadowbox effect. I've been wanting also to experiment with Dresden foil around the opening - I've always liked how ornate gothic architecture can be, so I pieced together pieces of foil in the shape of the arch. The beautiful image of the woman is from a digitally scanned postcard from French Kissed.
