Celebrate with Dahlias

Biweekly Challenge #399 at Color My Heart Color Dare is open Friday, June 19, through Thursday evening, July 2, 2020. The color theme is to create a monochromatic card using yellow. The rules also allow for the use of black and white.
Using a set of dies, I cut duplicate images of all the layers. The bottom layer was cut from a deep hue of yellow cardstock, the middle layer was cut from white cardstock, the top layer was cut from a light hue of yellow. I stacked the cardstock into the two dahlia images then adhered them together. Onto a white card base, I adhered a panel of dark yellow cardstock then a panel of black cardstock. The dahlias were added to the card front. A die-cut sentiment was added using white cardstock backed with black. The inside of the card was decorated with cardstock scraps.
Be sure to visit the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge Blog for inspiration and guidelines.

Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Basic Black, Hello Honey & Daffodil Delight
Dies: Birch Press Design "Dahlia Mini Frame" (three layers) & Spellbinders "Celebrate"
