Yes another challenge....
check out Nina's card for this challenge....
and here is my try ...I have to say this was my second card ...

yes the flowers in the middle are pressed flowers
 from a summer camping trip

this was my first try at the challenge
and would of work till I put the Happy Birthday at the bottom..


again dried flowers in the middle...

the paper used in both these cards were from
a pad called Tim Coffey  by K&Company
Spellbinders to make the holders for the dried flowers..
I used a clear sheet for the layer on top of the flowers.
 

 This the flower press I used...
my Brother-In-Law had gotten this for me years ago ..
and my SIL was always encouraging me to do dried flowers on cards...
so with this challenge I gave it a try ...
What do you think???

Here are some of the other stuff I have pressed ...
Well hope you enjoy ...

I love this, I too am a presser of flowers. I was surprised to see my poppies loose their color. Do you have any ideas why that was?.
Anyhow, lovely sharing. Keep smiling and creating.
