Donna *Day 5*

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you're ready for some major cuteness--here is our last inspiration card from the uber talented Donna:

I'm completely in awe of Donna's coloring skills. I *LOVE* the way she can bring an image to life with her markers and color choices! The polka dot backgrounds are so fun on all of these cute cards! I love the bright bold colors and smooth blending! Finally, the touch of yellow on the inside of the circle really rounds out this stunner!
Here is my take:I want to thank Donna again for allowing me to share her work on my blog. She is a huge inspiration to me and it has been a priveledge to post some of her cards here! Make sure you continue to check out her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM for lots more eye candy!
Have a wonderful weekend, my blogging friends, and I will see you on Monday with our next one-of-a-kind "Inspired by..." stamper!
Supplies---Stamps: All Stamps Hero Arts ( K5314, CL351, CG139); Ink: VersaMark, Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: Pearls (Recollections), Butterfly Punch (Fiskars), Die Cut (Nestabilities), Dimensional Adhesive (Thermo O Web), Misc.
