Inspired by...Dana

Welcome to another week of "Inspired by..." Our featured artist this week may very well be one of the sweetest friends I've met online. And not only is she super sweet, she is incredibly talented. It's Dana A.K.A. Scrapper43 on flickr. So without further ado, here's our first inspiration card by Dana:
The first thing that caught my eye on this beautiful card of Dana's is the unique colors. I love how she has paired the dark brown of the die cut with her super vibrant butterfly. (Which is colored and embellished to perfection, I might add!!) Then the teal of the background is so unexpected and lovely! And if you like this card, be sure to see THIS post on Dana's blog, because this card is part of a charming set of cards whose rainbow of colors will just make you feel happy!
Here is my take:
Thanks for popping by and I hope you will visit again tomorrow to see another of Dana's awesome cards. Oh, and if you just can't wait until tomorrow to see more of Dana's work, you can always pop over to her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM! :)

Where do I begin to thank such a wonderful friend! First thanks for doing this. I am honoured to say the least. Second, I am floored always by your work and today is no exception. This is outstanding my friend. The use of the colours I used have taken on a whole new life with the way you imported them to the background for your card. Oh my word is all I can say with regards to the brown embossed note card. Your butterfly appears that it is just fluttering for attention and with the beautiful colours that you used, that won't be difficult to get! Lol! Thanks again and thanks for this great surprise. On a day when we celebrate Thanksgiving here in Canada, I want to say that I am so Thankful for you my blogging buddy! Big Hugs!
