Less is more aperture

Am I the only one who has problems with these Marianne dies?   The one I used this morning is the center flower of a doily die.   The doily shape cut another piece of the same card perfectly, but then it came to the flower well that is a different story!

The result was about to be discarded when it struck me that it is an aperture in the off the page style, hope La Diva's agree.   Used printed vellum to cut three more flowers stuck one in the card flower and allowed the other two to float on the page.   All of them have yellow self adhesive gems in the center.

A CAS card for Less is More this morning.

  13. Lovely card. I only have one Marianne die so far and had to be very careful not to tear bits of the card as it was stuck to the die. I was hoping it is because it is new.
