My version of Sheena Douglass' Ancient Arches card

I fell in love with this image when I saw Sheena demonstrate it on C&C - I only wish mine (especially those pesky sun rays) was a fraction as good as hers was, as shown here (at the bottom of the page).  More practice needed methinks..and on the photography too...

Items used:

Sheena Douglass Ancient Arches and Aging Beautifully stamps,
Various Distress Inks,
Solar Gold Twinkling H2O and Radiant Rain pourable gold pearl.
