Miss You

Operation Write Home needed 2 more cards to reach their goal of at least 50 for their June "Our Daily Bread Designs challenge."  The challenge for June is to make Missing You cards.

Here is my submission.  I'm number 50!  Goal reached!  Whooohoooo!

For this card, I used one of the Faux Tile techniques.  I used a 3 x 3 piece of white card stock, scored at every 1/2 inched in both directions, stamp your image, brayer Versamark over the entire square, then add clear embossing powder over the entire square and heat it up - and it looks like ceramic tiles when you are done :)
