Seize the Birthday - The Great Divide

This time at Seize the Birthday the topping is the Great Divide.  The idea is to divide your card or focal image into two or more pieces.  Of course, it's always "Anything Goes" if you don't want to do the topping as long as it's for a birthday.   Here is how I was inspired.

I picked a beautiful flower stamp from Power Poppy.  I stamped it on white card stock and then colored with Copic marker.

Then I used some circle dies to cut my image into pieces.  I backed them with a scalloped die to give them a little pop.  The background was stamped with a set from PTI.

Please visit the Seize the Birthday blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team and our Special Party Guest, Jacquie, have made this time.  I hope you will be inspired and come play along.
