A Bird on a Wire Cage in The Play Date Cafe


I spy with my little eye black and white with a
splash of color!

You know what that means....
It's 'Color Splash' time in The Cafe!


Now I know we are all knee-deep in
Christmas creations, but why not spice it up
a bit with a non-traditional color??!!!


Yes I know...my card is hardly Christmas-themed
but it sure could be.  I could have added white poinsettias
and a sweet holiday sentiment.
But I chose to use these sweet little blossoms by
Making Memories that my friend Mona Pendleton
sent to me in a lovely gift package awhile back.
They were just calling my name!
The MM set came with tiny silver brads, but I 
switched them for tiny yellow ones.


How about that little yellow bird in a cage?!!
We have Jolee's Boutique to thank for that
lovely acetate embellishment.
The beautiful flourish circle frame is from 
Mark's Finest Papers, a recent sponsor
over in The Cafe.

So how about it?
I would love to see your creativity using
black, white and a splash of yellow!
