Tone on tone Vivid Bloom

Hi everyone - I'm sharing the card below at Die Cut Divas today for inspiration. We're doing tone on tone this month - using variations of the same color (plus neutrals are allowed). 

Supplies: Paper - Hero Arts Dove A2 card;
Sunny Studio; Doodlebug; Paper Studio
Dies - Birch Press Design Vivid Bloom Stitched Layer Set;
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Stamps with Dies - Hero Arts Message Strips Stamp & Cut XL

The fabulous Birch Press Design sponsored us this month and has donated a lovely $20 gift card for our random winner (to be announced August 3rd). 

While I have loads of Memory Box and Poppystamps, I had only a few BPD items. No worries - a trip to my LSS plus some online shopping solved that in a hurry!! I found the amazing Vivid Bloom set at my LSS and was delighted with the value. Decided to cut all 6 layers in various yellows and stack them up rotated to the notches, rather than nesting. Kinda looks like a succulent, don't you think? Another pattern of yellow for my background and a sentiment strip - done!!

Loved doing this so much that I made another card, this time leaving off the background layer and using a die cut sentiment Big Thanks Sugar Script from my online order. I used shades of my favorite color for a thank you card to my sister.

Hope to see your lovely tone on tone creations in our Die Cut Diva July gallery (deadline July 31st at 9pm Pacific Time). Thanks for stopping!!

What a wonderful die! Yellow isn't really my color, but I absolutely adore the first card, Linda!
