Less is More recipe challenge - polka dots - card 2

Loving polka dots as much as I do, I had to make another card for the Less is More challenge this week - a clean and simple (CAS) card using polka dots.



This one uses the Hero Arts Color Layering Orchid in a Pot stamp and die set I bought from the fabulous Seven Hills Crafts following my February win at Less is More - thanks again to Tara from Seven Hills Crafts and the LIM design team! 

The orchid is stamped on smooth white card using VersaColor pigment inks. Everything else is linen card stock. The polka dots are from the Cricut Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, the circle frame is a Sizzix Framelit and the "hello" sentiment is from Clearly Besotted, glued four layers deep for added dimension using a Sakura glue pen.
