Imagination Monday "Chinese New Year" Challenge




Hello, I made this card for Emma's Imagination Monday Challenge. I don't have an Imagine but I love to participate anyway! I had picked up the Pagoda Cart from M's for 9.99 the other day and as I was looking through the hand book I saw this cut. Right away I thought of this card. I am so happy it came out just as I had "imagined" it in my head (Usually it takes another direction and comes out differently, hehe).

Materials:
Pagoda Cricut Cartridge
True Black Cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper - Wonderful Winter from MMI
The "Noodles" - hemp cord from the jewelry aisle at M's

Thank you for looking and have an imaginistic day!!! Love, Cathryn <3

Oh this is so cute. I love the cut. I got a 9.99 cartridge too. The only one they had left was Paisley and that was the one I wanted. They only had like 3 left and the sale wasn't starting until 1:00 It was only 10 in the morning. I felt pretty lucky but bad for the people who came after me.
I love the way you used the hemp. So clever!
Thanks for becoming a follower. I am one of yours now too.

This is FABULOUS!! We live in an area where there is a BIG Asian population so I can SO relate to this and I'm sure they would too :) Very well done. Thanks for becoming a follower too :)
