I Miss You

This is my entry for two challenges today. The first is this week's sketch FTL152 at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. The second is the color challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this week (tempting turquoise, going grey, and basic white). This blue doesn't isn't really turquoise per se, but it's what I had in my scraps, and I'm trying to use those up. So I went with it. In real life, it is a little more turquoise and bright than it looks in the pictures though.
I really like how this card turned out. It would have also made a great wedding card, but I like to match wedding cards to the couples colors. So I didn't go that route.
This is the FTL152 sketch:
And, here is my take:

{i miss you}
Stamps: Not sure--random clear dollar stamp in my stash
Ink: TPC Studios Clearly Better Graphite
