Anything but White - for Daring Cardmakers

This week on Daring Cardmakers, the challenge is to use anything but white - I took the easy route and went for a pretty pattern paper, and the brand new Posies and Pennies die set by Tammy Tutterow for Spellbinders. I also used the new Nestability circle dies, and the Sew Sweet Trims dies (these are lovely, everything from rick-rack to eyelet embroidery) 


I had a lovely afternoon at the Gardeners World show - snapped these photos to show you, but I hope nobody asks me a question as I have no clue what most of them are, apart from being very beautiful. I do know this first photo is Fuschia.........


and lilies in every colour under the sun.....


I bought some of these Allium - I have discovered that I am rather attracted to slightly off the wall plants.........


......like this one


but I do love the look of an English country garden 


and yes, I spent far too much, and am a bit hazy about where I should plant most of them, it's a bit confusing,....... shade, semi shade, full sun, partial sun, dry arid soil, loamy soil, protect from frost................who knows, I will dig a hole, stick them in where there is a space and hope for the best
