Clever Cuts!

This card doesn't need much explaining, as they say in the adverts, it's exactly what it says on the wrapper lol!
I was rather chuffed though as I was going to mat my image onto the red Xcut panel, wasn't too sure about it but came up with the idea of using my blade to cut a line across the fancy corners of the die cut, almost to the edge,
 then fitted perfectly as if held in place by photo corners. 
I'm so going to use this technique again! 

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
AI 43, Paper piercing,
CMC21, Spots or stripes,
CWLC43, 3+ layers,
MIM142, Anything goes,
CWWC45, Die cuts,
HCC7, Flowers.

Thanks for stopping by,
