Challenge Card

Hello everyone
Well at 4.30 the sun is only just getting up...lazy ikkle sun!
At least we have had a bit of much needed rain for the garden!

I made a Christening card and Im entering it into 
One Stop Craft challenge Texture 
Nothing exciting, only die cuts, but, effective I think.
I don't normally add the little bit of embossing to the church, but as it reminded me of brick I had the brainwave to add it!
