A tutorial and Sassy Cheryl's card

I'm gonna start with my Sassy Cheryl card. It's Colour me in #16  and on the Challenge blog the theme is: Something new it is a new image after all. I couldn't get both image this week and I had to choose, so I picked the gorgeous Button Flowers bag and a very simple sketch from CDAC sketch challenge. I fell in love with this simple and clean sketch so further -a-do here is my card

 When I took the pick I forgot to colour underneath the bag but I still show you as colours on this much better then above. It was getting dark when I took it outside and by the time I finished colouring it was completely dark so had to take pic inside with flash on. As you can see I paper pieced it. I printed on the green patchwork DP and on the purple patchwork DP then cut the needed bits out. The DP is from TLC Creations Spring/Easter club and WA is from there too. The swirls are one of the freebie from TLC Creations.
 Close up of image(this is the one which forgot to colour but got the true colours)
Here you can see that the button is glitter glued but before I put the glue on I made holes on the heart button and when it was dry I put a shiny purple thread through
And the side view I just bought those dinky buttons yesterday
On one of the forum where I go sometimes one of my friend asked me if I could do a tutorial for her how my images hanging off my die cut, so Betty here you go this is for you

1st step: Get your die and position it over yr image and draw lines inside the die next to the image (some ppl like to drew all the way round but fore enough just little line to indicate where I need to cut)
 Step 2: See  the little lines at the bunny's ear, that show me I got to cut it all the way down to the line to be able to slide my die underneath. Cut from above with one strait line then cut to the right and left to go round the ears. Next 2 picture shows you how
Step 3: once you cut it down the line place your die over the image and make sure the ears (the bit what's gonna hang over the die) is above the die cut so you not cutting the ears off when you put it into your machine.  Sorry for the bad picture quality I didn't realised it till I uploaded my pic onto PC
 Here is a pick from the back so you see how I cut it and how the die got to be before die cutting
 And woala my image after die cutting read to put it on the card.. I hope this little tutorial is clear enough if not let me know which part and I'll correct it. The finished card is one post below.
