GOTHIC ARCHES-"Daisies"


The bi-weekly Gothic Arches Challenge theme is DAISIES. I thought this sweet image from Paper Whimsy fit the bill, as did this pretty scrapbook paper from My Mind's Eye. The caption "The poet's darling" is one of the lines in which William Wordsworth defined this lovely flower in his poem, To The Daisy. This was definitely a challenge for me, as at first, I didn't know what to do with the theme. It just sort of came together after I looked through my "image stash" and thought about it a little. Takes me awhile, that's for sure!!!!!

Hi, Jann, You did a fantastic job on your arch, very charming!! I also enjoyed seeing your beautiful tea cup from Tuesday. The history behind it makes it even more special. Have a lovely week and thank you for dropping by my place for a visit. Vicki

I love the way you positioned the girl in front of the pink daisy so it looks like she is wearing a crown.
