MAKE IT MONDAY #242: SPONGED STAMPING

Hi dear friends!! We have almost made it to Friday!!!  Whooo hoo!!  I am so loving all my new Papertrey Ink stamps, dies and stencils!!  Creativity totally adds spice to life, doesn't it!!  I have a card to share inspired from the Make It Monday Challenge at PTI.  Here's the challenge:
--Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and sponged stamping.
I used the Life is Beautiful Butterfly to complete the challenge.  I stamped the stamp with Hibiscus Burst Ink and then sponged Sweet Blush Ink on the edges and Raspberry Fizz Ink on the center of the butterfly.  I also used the technique on the leaves with a little Vintage Jadeite Ink sponged with some Hawaiian Shores Ink.  So fun.  I used Color Pop Florals and Painted Petals stamp sets in addition to the Life Is Beautiful Butterflies.  So many fun stamps are included in these sets and when you pair them up with pretty inks, it totally makes my heart happy!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!!  Hope you have an awesome Friday!!
