an ikat thank you....

Hello friends!!  A super windy day here in the PacNW... thought I was going to blow away when I picked up the little guy from school!!  Have a card I made using the new ColourQ combo (black, yellow, bright blue, light blue and white).  I'm not a super trendy person when it comes to clothes or stamping, but when I saw the Irresistibly Ikat set that was released by PTI last month I was intrigued by the designs and so I purchased it... so glad I did because sometimes you just have to step outside your little box and try a trend!!  

My sister needed a masculine "thank you" card, but after going through my huge assortment of cards I could not find a single "thank you" that would work for a guy.  So, I decided to whip out my Irresistibly Ikat set and make a thank you card with it using the ColourQ combo.  A pretty darn simple card, but so perfect for a guy.  It is a bit hard to tell, but I did use to different shades of blue (Memento Danube Blue and SU!'s Brocade Blue).  You can definitely see the difference IRL.  And since this uses a chevron-style image I'm going to pop it into the Moxie Fab World Chevron challenge.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  PTI; Ink:  Memento Danube Blue, Tuxedo Black & Dandelion; SU! Brocade Blue

I LOVE this. I stayed away from the ikat set because I just wasn't sure it would look CAS - but you have used it perfectly!

Oh... such a great card! Love the blues with the yellow, and appreciate the masculine edge (I definitely need more guy/neutral designs, waiting patiently for my PTI ikat!). Thanks for the inspiration!
