Operation Write Home #2

Gina, a fellow blogger, was sending  cards to Operation Write Home.  I love being a part of such an awesome program!  This time we made cards for the heroes to send home to their families with the theme "Missing You."   I wanted to make them unique and extra special.  Here is what I made:

I love the colors of this card.  I was inspired by my new ink pads I just got.
I tried a ombré effect on the sentiment.

•Heidi Swap:
•Studio G Clear Stamp Missing You
