Decorated Kraft Box with Gerbera Daisy - Create with Connie & Mary #163

This week the challenge at Create with Connie & Mary is a colour one:  Tangerine Tango, So Saffron and Pacific Point.  More on their blog here

I had to do a lot of thinking about this colour combination.  For some reason my creative mind was not sending out any ideas.
Suddenly, this morning it hit me!  Decorate a Kraft box and put a 3D Gerbera Daisy on top!

I made the Gerbera Daisy first, with the colours of the challenge - using a tutorial created by Shelly Bohan here and the Daisy Die #2.
After assembling the Kraft box, I covered the top and sides with Beyond the Garden designer paper (focusing on the sheet that was predominately Pacific Point and white).
A scallop circle in Whisper White was cut using the Scallop Circle die.  The scallops were inked with Tangerine Tango ink.
The completed Gerbera Daisy was mounted on the top of the box using dimensionals.
The gift tag is from Beautiful Season.  It is attached to the box with white baker's twine.
The Pumpkin Pie 1 1/4" striped grosgrain ribbon (retired) was cut in half and frayed - then it was wrapped around the box. A bow was made with the other half and mounted on the front of the box.
