Openings.........

......is this weeks Gothic Arches challenge. I like to go with the first thing that comes to mind when creating.. too much thinking isn't good, makes my brain hurt!...
... so openings = zips!
A quick rummage through the haberdashery drawer to find some vintage zips....
It's amazing the things you accumulate over the years!
So here she is .. all sewn up. The paper is K&CO Cut'n'Paste and the stamp is Zettiology.
