Hello, all!  It's Friday again and that means another challenge from Christmas Stampin' All Year Long.  This week the challenge is: Use everyday patterned paper.  That means NO winter or Christmas patterned paper.
Our sponsor is the fabulous Emma Canning and there will be THREE winners this week.

I chose this gorgeous church image to work with and had to come up with something elegant to go with it.  Do you think it worked?
Now, it's time to hop on over to the CSAYL blog to check out all the details and then play along.  Remember NO winter or Christmas paper.

5. sentiments on front
6. use lots of black
