Week 4 with Diana Queen

In our fourth week with Diana, she has this lovely "Pressed Flowers" card to share. While you can still see some beautifully embossed flowers peeping around the corners of the die cut frame, the focus of this card is really the leaves, like stepping out into a lush garden, and I love how you could use these without any flowers to create a "less feminine", although still beautiful, nature themed project.
The patterned paper adds wonderful texture and color without distracting from the focal point and that lattice border really takes the ribbon treatment to another level! Greeting is from "Arranged with Love". Here are Diana's details for the card:

stamps: Gina K Designs "Pressed Flowers" and "Arranged With Love" paper: Gina K Designs pure luxury card stock in Pure Luxury Ivory and Creme de Menthe
ink: VersaMark dazzle watermark embossed with yellow embossing powder, Memento dye ink in bamboo leaves and brown, Ranger distress ink in tea dye.
other:Martha Stewart edge punch, ribbon and rhinestones

Diana, you have done such a wonderful job designing with this set, thank you so much for all the "Pressed Flowers" inspiration! Let's go see what else she has for us!
