Teeny tiny poinsettias

Good morning everyone.  Just a quick post this morning.  This is for my Verve challenge VLVSEP02 with a twist.  There was not a particular sketch to follow, we just had to make a "tiny" card.  I made a set of these using the newly released Peaceful Poinsettia from Papertrey Ink.  Love this set, and as some of you may know, I love and own quite a few Poinsettia stamps.  I started by inking up one of the many poinsettia images with SU Purely Pomegranate ink.  I literally took the cellophane off of the ink pad this morning as I had never used it.  I had these tiny 3 X 3 note cards from SU that I had also never used and saw the PP note cards, so that determined the colour combo.  I embossed the front of the cards in a SU e.f. that is recently acquired and I love the detail in the impression.  This dp is also SU and I used the MS scalloped lace border punch on it.  The poinsettia image was cut using my Spellbinder Blossom die and I used the next 2 sizes of the set to make the frames for the poinsettia to rest on.  All edges were sponged with PP and I placed a K and Co. dark pink rhinestone in the center to finish off.  I also stamped the tiny envelope flap with a trio poinsettia stamp from the same PTI set.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!
Cheers,
Chriss
