It has been a busy few days, so I'm a little behind on posting the card that I made for the Stampin' Celebration challenge.

Here are the DEEtails:

I am loving Pink Pirouette right now, and I used it for this card as well, along with some sleek Basic Black. I started by making my Chanel C. I used my 2" circle punch and cut out the center with my 1 1/2" circle punch, then cut a section off to make the C shape. Then I stuck my card stock into some VersaMark and heat embossed it twice to get a glossy look. Next, I made my flower. I punched a 1" circle in basic black and adhered a piece of black grosgrain ribbon from my stash around the perimeter. One edge of the ribbon is adhered to the back, the other edge faced straight up. Then I took my scissors and carefully cut the top edge of the ribbon and frayed it to create the fuzzy center of my flower. I punched 1" circles in Pink Pirouette and adhered them behind for my petals. I matted a piece of Pink Pirouette cardstock and added some Basic Black satin ribbon, tied in a bow. I adhered my C with Stampin' Dimensionals, then scribbled the rest of the word "celebrate." I added my flower and tucked a few Pear Pizazz leaves made from my bird punch underneath. Voila!

Thanks for stopping by!
