Donna *Day 3*

Here is our next inspiration card by Donna:

Aren't these colors just divine? I love the playfulness of the aqua, orange, and kraft. The faux postage is a wonderful idea! I also really love the tone on tone stamping on the aqua cardstock. The subtle image is really beautiful. Finally, the edges of the faux postage look fabulous against the kraft background.

Here is my take. I was especially inspired by the faux postage image with the blue sky and white edges and the touches of orange/yellow.Hope you are all having a great day! See you tomorrow!
Supplies--Stamps: Hero Arts (CL389); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Copic and Martha Stewart Markers, White Gel Pen (Sakura); Other: Misc. Cardstock and Thread, Kraft Cardstock (Stampin' Up), Embossing Folders (Provocraft for Cuttlebug), Scallop Die Cut (Nestabilities)

Donna is SO INSPIRING and YOU are, too! Isn't it FUNNY that Donna's last name is MIKASA?? I know that it's spelled differently on the card, but I still think that it's funny!! I LOVE both of the cards that you have showcased. Love, Karen xoxo
