New Challenge at Less Is More!

Hi friends!
I'm here with my DT card for our new recipe challenge at Less is More:

Dimension is one of my favorite "spices" to add to clean and simple card making so I just love this recipe of ours! I'm happy to be back at Less Is More after a break for one whole month -I've moved house and my crafting supplies have been out of reach. Slowly getting back into the swing of things! 

The month of October is sponsored by Uniko. Play along for a chance to win a fabulous prize... And for a chance to be called to guest design for us! Our guest designer this time is Claire and her card is full of great ideas for dimension -don't miss it! 

My card is created with dies by Concord and 9th and Winnie and Walter. As soon as I saw this glorious leaf die from Concord and 9th I knew I had to have it. I love the large size and the detailed look! I cut the leaf from orange card and gave it ombre ink blending for more dimensional look. I also spashed some golden water color on it for sparkle. I've popped up the white pierced rectangle (cut with Winnie and Walter die) and the sentiment banner with fun foam for extra dimension. The sentiment is heat embossed with white powder for subtle extra dimension! Hope you like! 

I'd like to join:
