Pink, White, Grey and Argyle

Lately I have been feeling a lack of mojo--- but I am certain that it is coming from the general direction of trying to refinance our house - which is FINALLY in progress. SO I should be getting it back soon. :)

On Saturday my best friend Kourt and I found some time to craft. It was choppy at best while Malakai (her son and my Godson) is teething and just wants to be held. So between the two of us, we kept him occupied and co-created a card. I gave her the color scheme and showed her the Wild Card™ argyle cuts and we both picked out the papers together and took turns cutting out the shapes. She glued it together and added the swiss dots embossing (I think that looks amazing and would never have thought to do it!!!). She also thought of the tag on the front and we both put our heads together on the ribbon and the stamping. So honestly, it was a completely joined effort of goodness. I did cut the envelope the wrong way - the stripes were supposed to be vertical! Bad me. Anyway, we had a wonderful time creating this together and I hope you like it too!

Of course, it qualifies for a few challenges:
Cricut Cardz Challenge:Use a card feature on a cartridge
EAD Designs:Pink, Grey, Argyle and optional White and Black
Off the Wall Craftiness:Pale pink, grey, and white or cream

I have looked at this cut on the Wild Card cartridge many times but never got brave enough to try it myself. I absolutely love how your card came out. I may have to give it a try. Thanks for joining us at CCC.
