RED, and PINK +

Quick post before I get my head down to the hopefully finishing touches to my dissertation. My tutor has seen it and given me some tips to tweak it in a few places.
I made this card for my friend's 40th - not til June so in plenty of time! I knew when I saw this image I wanted it for her card and she shares the same name. The background card has been lurking around forever and is K&co - that little window in the top right corner is pre cut and until now I have never really known what to do with it. That is what is so brilliant about these challenges - first I realised it had most of the colours I needed and then I thought it would be good to put the "40" in there so that when the card is standing it is not "in your face" LOL!

Piece of red SU card and the SU sentiments stamped with their whisper white pad. The pink spotty paper is actually embossed with clear dotty stamp and then I put my brayer over it with pink ink to resist - getting messy these days! Not sure you can see it that well in the photo but it does give a glossy image to the dots.
Almost forgot! - the challenge is Colour create Red, pink, white and chocolate

The image is great Linby. I love the colour scheme and the DP you've teamed it up with. She's very sophisticated!!!!

Hope you're getting on with the *D* word - what have you done it about or have I asked you that before?

This is wonderful! The 'not in you face' 40 is an absolutely brilliant idea! Thanks for joining us at the Colour Create Challenge.
