Colour Create - Julie is 40!

One of my friends is 40 this month! Julie is a very creative person who run our local ceramic painting studio "Dip'n'Doodle". I have a few cards to do for her Birthday on the 13th. This first one is combining this weeks colour create challenge - cream, red and chocolate!
I have created a new image for this card "Daisy" She is tucked in behind the "0" but her skirt is like the petals of a flower .I have paper pieced Daisy using Basic Grey Wassail papers and added a little Sakura detail.
The 40 and Julie are cut on my pazzles using Coredinations whitewash card and are sanded at edges. I have used a hammer cream card base with well inked edges of dark red and chocolate. Layers of paper are a irredescent chocolate, bassil embossed swirl and some Wassail by Basic Grey. I coloured some leather red to cut the trellis ribbon and wrapped it around 0 securing with brads. Some more die cut flowers added with brads, larger flower at top left is swirl grungeboard painted with cosmic shimmer and edges inked red - then petals added.
Finnished off with a few Basic Grey rub ons.
