Ombre AND Chevrons: Missing You

A week ago, I was writing that I never quite knew what to do with cover plate dies.  About the same time, I was hitting the "confirm order" button on an order with a new cover plate.  (Sometimes I wonder about myself!)  But this one was so different and really cute...chevron and ombre all in one place!

Wishing You

I still struggled with it (but don't judge the plate on that - I even struggle with patterned paper!)  I absolutely the series of blues in the Simon Says Stamp line, so I stuck with my favorite blues and kept the card simple!

I am submitting this to the current Anything Goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp.
