Elven Door

The Three Muses challenge 2 is doors. Here I played with various brushes and overlaying of backgrounds to achieve a rich colour.
The words are written with the font used on the ring from Lord of the Rings, and use the Elven greeting from the book. I was tempted to put a litle Hobbit in front, but felt it unnecessary!
