SU211a French Foliage Poinsettia

This is the instructions on how I made the Poinsettia from my previous post.
Using the leaf from the French Foliage set, stamp eight petals on regal rose cardstock using cherry cobbler ink and three leaves on old olive cardstock using garden green ink.  Punch out a 3/4" circle and pounce cherry cobbler on it with your sponge.  Cut out and sponge the edges.  Cut the stem off four petals.  Leave the rest longer.  Curl the leaves and petals.
Glue four petals on the circle to create an X.  It won't matter if a bit of the circle shows as it is pounced the same color as the petals so it will blend in quite well.
Glue the other four petals under the first four to create another X.
Add the leaves.  Punch six 1/4" circles as proceed as I did HERE.
