Hello, friends:}

**If you are looking for my Limelight post, please scroll down!
We over at The Play Date Cafe have another awesome color combo for you today to play around with along with a special celebrity guest! Kelly Marie of Lawn Fawn is with us this week--she is sharing her special talent and creativity!! This color combo [or colour splash] is super pretty--black and white, with a splash of orange. Love that last part--just a splash! I had several designs in my head for a card...but this one was my FAV!!
I used just scrap pieces of white and black DP and cut them up into little squares. I did dry emboss the solid black cardstock with Sizzix large dots. I was unsure of what to use for the sentiment and what to put on the orange...but then I went through my Lizzie Anne Design KOTM stamps! WOW--I can't believe I haven't used them more! Great stuff! I found this super cute crow and sentiment in the Sept. 09 KOTM set. Super fun! Then I zigzag stitched like argyle...and tied a bow. Presto:} LOVE this card! I love the PDCC! **NOTE:: This is a great card (with all that stitching) for Lucy's Challenge! 

Be sure to check out the other DT members' blogs...WOWSERS! These gals know how to use these neutral colors with just a splash of orange!! So creative!
