Pressed Flowers

New technique toot on Splitcoast called Pressed Flowers.

Fun technique and probably a lot of ways you can take this.

I have been inspired by the following challenges:

1. Corrosive Challenges - button up, I placed pearls on the 3 buttons
2. Picture Perfect Creations - colors of Rich Razzelberry, Blushing Bride and Old Olive
3. CCEE Stampers - use a punched piece, 5-petal flower by SU! and Heart (for leaves) MS
4. Craft Us Crazy - Anything Goes
5. Crazy 4 Challenges - vintage or shabby chic, sponged the bottom portion and the pressed flowers appear vintage to me!
6. Creatalicious Challenge - all about Ribbon and Love
7. Creative Card Crew - pink and purple
8. Diva Coffee Break Design - the sketch I used

9.   Dutch Dare Card Challenge - buttons, buttons, whose got the buttons?
10. Kaboodle Doodles - Monochromatic
11. 365 Cards, Day 339, Half and Half - Half embossing, half sponged (check out my DD DT card for this challenge at the above link!)
12. Faux Pressed Flower at Splitcoast - my take of the technique

Well, getting ready to leave the house for the first time today since Monday afternoon! 3 more 'spurts' of snow predicted for the next week. Yippy!

YEAH!! Finally another card! I still can't believe you've had 4 1/2 snow days this past week but only made two cards!! Come on, create more for those of us that still have to work!!! Of course we don't have the snow and ice!! Love your card and especially your take on my 365 Cards challenge! And what a fun technique, guess I'll have to give it a go too! Thanks and can't wait to see what you do next (hint, hint!)

Aloha, KL

Your card is stunning! I love the way you used our colors with the sketch! Must say I forgot about that little sentiment stampset and should pull mine back out! Thank you so much for sharing this little beauty with us at PPC.
