New Stamps and Challenges from Papertrey Ink and I {heart} Card Sketches!

Hey Gang!!  It's Aloha Friday here in Hawaii-nei!!  Hope all is going well, and that your weekend is starting off on a great start!!!  So last week, I was able to get me some stamps to add to my collection!!  Got these all online!!  Yay!!  :)  After I saw some cute images on my Claudie's IG, I wanted to get me some, so she hooked me up with a coupon from Simon Says, and I got these:

And after attending Wini's Craftin' Fun Day, I was inspired to get these from PaperTrey Ink!!!  So in LOVE with them...  Oh so YUMM!!!! 

So, excited to have these, and looking forward in using them!!  I usually stack up my new stamps, and then let them sit... as a collection usually does! haha!!  But, I am trying really haaaaard to use these new stamps that I get in, so that they don't just do that.  I checked out PaperTrey Ink to see if they had a challenge... lo n' behold, yes they do!!  So I was thrilled to see that there was!! Their challenge is called, "Make it Monday", and this week's challenge can be found here.  The challenge is to create using an "Overlapping Ombre" technique.  Nicole Heady shares a video on how to do this.  Here is what I came up with...
