First of all, I absolutely love the grouping of all the dies into single color dies. The leaves are particularly fabulous, because you have already "put the puzzle pieces together to get as many die cuts as possible from one small piece of paper. I love using these die cut leaves mixed in with all my die cut flowers. Secondly, because of the loose nature of these dies, the layering is open to interpretation. No struggling to get the pieces lined up perfectly. In fact, the ability to shift the layers around a bit and create a garden of similar, but different flowers is part of what makes this set fabulous. Lastly, light to dark flowers look just as good as dark to light. One other thing I like to do is to add some of the die cut scraps from my garden picks set to this set - particularly one of the inside pieces of the large rose. It creates it's own small flower that works with this set.
