pressed flower artSeveral years ago I bought a pressed flower note card from a craft store. It cost $1.75 for a simple white card with an indented oval covered with two pressed flowers. It was simple and delicate and I thought it would make a wonderful card for a friend of mine. Ever since then I’ve been hooked!
