Dominican Countdown-1 Day!

Today is my last day at home before we leave for the DR!  We will leave our house tonight/tomorrow morning around 1:00 am.  Please pray for us and everyone who will be traveling with us, as well as all of the Dominican people!
I just loved this sketch from Try Stampin' On Tuesday.  It is right up my alley because when I see all those colored rectangles I think SPONGING!
I masked each side with a piece of copy paper and sponged on three different colors, Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Gumball Green.  They blend so nicely with the sponges on our Whisper White cardstock.  

The leaves in the corner are from Lovely as a Tree.  I usually put rhinestones or brads in the corner, so I thought this changed it up a bit.
