Less is more

My 'boys' are away, giving me lots of play time. The new "Less is More" challenge has just popped up, and my new embossing folder is perfect for it. This has been a great buy - got it yesterday and have already done three different cards and techniques with it.
Sketch Time Week 247 is the challenge link and here is the sketch:

I've turned it sideways and here is my card:

I embossed plain white card in the Dreamweavers folder. Then I embossed the red patterned paper in the folder and trimmed it to the height I wanted, then dusted it with the Stop Static pad. Next I used a brayer to apply Versamark ink to the paper layer (keeping the layer on the folder for support). Then applied Seafoam White powder and heat embossed. The central white panel is edged with barn door Distress Marker.

Today's play time also produced the following, showcasing the two Memory Box dies that I've used (Jumbled Thanks and Happy Hibiscus):
