Less is most certainly more!

Just a quick post tonight, and a really quick card make too.

The Less Is More challenge this week was of the theme - One Layer Card - Embossing.
The embossing could be heat or dry embossing.  
I had a lovely Stampin' Up! delivery today, which included a couple of pots of embossing powder, so I thought I'd have a go at the heat embossing.

I used the Just Believe stamps set, which is really versatile for so many occasions.
I decided to use Pear Pizzazz card for the base as it reminds me of spring and I thought the white embossing powder would look good against this colour card.
The main image was inked in Versamark and stamped, then covered in the White Embossing Powder and heated with a heat gun to melt it.  I also added the sentiment the same way, though I think it's just slightly crooked!  It is my first attempt though, and I was really pleased with the result.

Let me know what you think by adding a comment below - and drop by the Less Is More blog site to check out everyone else's entries.
