Ikat Thank You

I've been having fun with the Irresistibly Ikat set from Papertrey Ink.  
I had a panel of stamped cardstock left over from another project, 
so I decided to use it on a thank you card. The final size is 4"x 4".

I used a variety of blue inks to create an ombre effect and then 
added a sentiment in the darkest blue. Dark blue paper was used 
to mat the stamped panel before adding it to a white card base.

Raspberry Fizz card stock was used to make a flower with the Bloom Builder's #3 die. (I used the two smallest flowers on the die and cut them twice to create a 4 layer flower.)  A clear adhesive dot was added to the center.

Card Details: (PTI, unless noted)
Stamps -  Irresistibly Ikat, Mini Blooms (sentiment)
Inks - Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky; 
Outdoor Denim (Close To My Heart)
Paper - Stamper's Select White, Raspberry Fizz; 
dark blue paper (from my scrapbin)
Dies - Bloom Builder's #3; 
Spellbinders: Square Nestabilities
Other - Clear adhesive dot

I am linking this  card to the
Ombre Challenge in  the Moxie Fab World.

Thanks for visiting today.
