French Foliage Poinsettia

I saw a card with a poinsettia in the Stampin' Success magazine (Stampin' Up Demonstrators get this magazine each month full of great card and project ideas as well as new techniques and business info) this month that used the pearls for the middle and I got inspired. This is my version of that idea!
To make this card I used the Just Believe and French Foliage stamp sets. For the leaves of the Poinsettia I used the leaf from the French Foliage stamp set in Very Vanilla Craft ink on Cherry Cobbler paper with not too much Vanilla ink on my stamp. When you first stamp it on the paper it is comes out looking like Vanilla ink. If you give it a little time it will turn a light pink color and looks softer. Then I just cut out the leaves and used Dimensionals to put them together.
For the main part of the card I used Very Vanilla paper stamped with Early Espresso ink with the cursive words and then sponged with Soft Suede ink around the edges. I also used Early Espresso paper for the outline of the Vanilla pieces.
The "believe" sentiment is from the Just Believe stamp set and is inked with the Cherry Cobbler marker and stamped on the 1/2" wide strip of paper.

I love this card.
