Who first comes to this world below
In dreary November's fog and snow
Should prize the topaz amber hue
Emblem of friends and lovers true
The first Gothic Arch challenge of 2010 is Birthstones. My birthsign is Scorpio and my birthstone Topaz.
I have used Moonglow Stardust Stains on the background, Red Hot Poker Orange and Cattail Copper Brown. The stamps used are by Stampers Anonymous and Stampington & Co "The Crimson Fan". Added some sequins and a flower embellishment.
