Raining Flowers in Calypso Coral

The other night on Global TV they were doing a special report on the Great Bear Rain Forest and the Spirit Bear.  We used to live in that area and sailed those waters.  I looked at the graphics when they were previewing the special and I saw what I wanted to use in a card - yup inspiration can come from anywhere.  The graphic was done in greens and had sort of a wavy split line between the two colours with a third colour peering out in the slit.  This is the card I came up with using the split line .....
 It took me a bit to figure out how to make the Calypso Coral cardstock the size I want and still have the split in it.  I did not want the split to be even, I wanted it smaller at the top and wider at the bottom.  So I cut the Whisper White cardstock the size I wanted. Then cut the Calypso Coral cardstock 1/4 inch bigger both ways.  Then I hand cut the slit and adhered it to the Whisper White layer and cut off the excess Calypso Coral cardstock.  Then I had to spritz it with Champagne Mist Shimmer Spritz, cuz with me it's all about the bling!!!  Here is a closer view of the flower and sentiment pieces .....
The flower is from Raining Flowers set and stamped in Calypso Coral and Basic Black and hand cut.  I used 2 different flower images.  The sentiment is done using the Decorative Label punch.  In THIS POST I showed you a really tiny punch out from the punch (and a link to Patty Bennett's blog where she has a tutorial on how to do it).  For this one I did the same thing, just used the long side of the punch instead of the short side.  Then I punched out a Wide Oval in Basic Black and hand cut it to layer the white piece.
