Pointsettias, Paint Chips, and Patterned Papers

I am blessed beyond measure to design for Simon Says Stamp!!  I am also blessed beyond measure to receive products from them to create with!!  I received the Mod Pointsettia and Mod Leaves dies for the Diecember® release, but with the You are Loved release right on the heels of that release, I haven't had a chance to use these pretty dies, until now.  I KNOW the flower is a mod poinsettia, but I didn't even think of it as a pointsettia, or know that until I looked at the die's title, so I decided to show ways you could use this flower for everyday occasions!!  For this reason, the flower choices are blue, yellow and purple...NOT pointsettia colors:)!! AND...then I put the Mod Leaves die cut up against the Mod Poinsettia die cut, and I LOVED them together...they fit perfectly together and looked sooooo pretty together!!  So what you see below, are three cards made with BOTH dies together!!   I made them all pretty similarly, using paint chips for the flowers and leaves, patterned paper for the background, with stamped Simon sentiments for different occasions.  
The first is a blue flowered thank you...
I used TWO shades of blue paint chips, no color on the leaves and a gray linen design paper (Doodlebug) for the background.  Here's a close up...
The second one, a yellow flower...
 This one, I opted to use two shades of green paint chips for the leaves, and THREE shades of yellow for the flower.  I used a Sunny Studio striped gray paper for the background and made it a card for my mom...she loves yellow and daisies...this flower fit the bill!!  Here's a close up...
 The third one, I made a purple birthday flower...
This one, I used FOUR shades fo purple paint chips, two shades of green for the leaves, and some itsy bitsy polka dotted paper(kraft collection) from MFT stamps, that I could not find, so it must have been discontinued...along with a Simon Happy Birthday sentiment .  Here's a close up...
So much fun...pointsettias...paint chips...and patterned paper...leaves and sentiments, too...but the three "P's" had a better ring to it:):)!!
I MUST give a HUGE birthday shout out to Simon Says Stamp...
