International Art & Soul Challenge Texture

Good Morning Friends,

I am back!  Today is a new challenge over at International Art & Soul Challenge #26 -Texture.

For My Design Team project I made an 5x7 Owl Shadow Box Card.  It is a Christmas card box from the Silhouette Store.

For my texture, I embossed the outside of the frame and the branch the owl is sitting on and I also used glitter stock paper.

I usually give everything I make away, but I have decided to keep this!  I collect owls, all sorts of owls, paper, figurines, etc.   This is where I decided this little art work should go.

Isn't this a fun collection.  I want to point out the beautiful owl mini album on the top shelf that my friend Rhonda made me and along the bottom is a hanger with all of the handmade owl cards that my friends have made me.

I am entering my 5x7 Shadow Box into the following challenges:

Simply Papercraft - Challenge #54 Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - All Boxed Up
2 Crafty Critter Crazies - #11 Anything Goes With A Critter
