DT card for Craft-Room Challenge 'Emboss it!'

Time for another challenge at the Craft-Room and our challenge this fortnight as my title gives away is 'EMBOSS IT!'

Our sponsors for this challenge are
Stamp Addict

so please come along and join in the fun :o)

Here is my card

No DP's for this challenge, I have use a Sizzix textures paisley template for the embossed background and distressed it with tim holtz distress inks then matted and layered in browns

This gorgeous stamp is from stamp addicts and has been stamped in brown and then painted in the same tim Holtz distress inks, I have also distressed the edges.  I have then triple embossed using ultra thick embossing powder.

The sentiment is again from stamp addicts and has been distressed and triple embossed as the image

And here is the inside of my card, distressed again......

with another gorgeous owl painted with distress inks, cut out and glued in to finish it off

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
