Thanks Grandma

EDIT:  I made the ColorQ royal court with this card!  Thanks for the acknowedgement ladies!

This is a thank you card for Rob's Grandma 'T'.  She is always so generous with our family and she gave Lily a nice gift for her birthday.  She always deserves an extra special card from us.  This was made combining 2 challenges (crazy, I know!)  First the 2S4U #50 bonus layout challenge by Heather, a great simple layout allowing the elements to shine!  Second, the ColourQ challenge.  This is the first ColourQ challenge I have done but I've been watching their site for a while now.  They always come up with interesting color combinations, and this was no exception!  I used a May Arts striped burgandy and ivory ribbon and colored the ivory stripes with a YoYo Yellow marker.  Next time I would use Pumpking Pie. 

P.S. No such luck on getting to bed early, it's currently 2:21 a.m.  Perhaps I'll be able to sleep in???

Thanks Grandma!
