Look - no patterned paper!

There's no denying it, I love my patterned paper! It is very, very rare for me to make a card without using at least a little bit... but this card has none at all! If I'd sat down yesterday and tried to do that deliberately, I'd still be sitting here now! This card is one of those that just came together and I really love it. I'm thinking that it would make a great Christening or Confirmation card. I followed this week's ISMAKI challenge sketch..

The central panel is white card, embossed with Swiss Dots on my Cuttlebug. The lace, ribbon, flower etc are from my stash. I had this new church stamp from Magnolia last week, I thought it would be perfect for wedding cards. The church building I coloured in a very pale grey. The windows I watercoloured first, then I went over the individual panes with a clear Sakura Glaze pen. It gives them a nice 'glassy' look. I drew the little hearts with a Zig pen and coloured them in then added a little Stickles to the flower. The church panel is raised from the background on foam pads. I am really pleased with this card!
