Hi, Jan, all the cards are beautiful! I love the card with the 5 flowers the most I think, but I love the card with the 7 flowers too.
Many thanks for such positive feedback Marie-Jose. I'm pleased that you like the cards. JanB.

FYI If you wrap your warped plate in foil, place on a cookie sheet with a heavy weight on top – I use a stoneware pot or cast iron skillet – bake in preheated 300 oven for 20 min. Let cool completely before removing weight & unwrapping. Voila, a flatter plate.
I like the card with the 7 flowers
Thanks for that, Karen. I had heard that this could be done with warped plates but not how! Also appreciate your feedback about the amount of flowers on my card. JanB
