June Scrapology card challenge - English Country Garden

This month, it was Karen's turn to set the challenge - she chose English Country Garden, which I thought was an inspired and original choice.  I debated what type of card to do - I could have got out some stamps and very laboriously created an elaborate and time consuming card, but there is also merit in making a quick one, too! :)

I found this perfect paper in my stash - which funnily enough, turns out to be Australian! :lol:  That tickled my funny bone, so it did. 

No need to really explain anything by way of technique - so simple!  I guess the hardest part was marrying up the colours from the paper to the embellishments.  I made another one first, but I don't like it nearly as much - with such a gorgeous paper as this, I think simpler is better.  :)
