adding additional LED to tinytv

Hello there!  Would anyone happen to know a way to wire in a very small SMD LED to the tinytv board so it can ideally be powered by the lipo?  Intended functionality is for the led to be on when the unit is switched on, and off when the unit is switched off.  In other words, I'm mainly just looking for a spot where I can pull 3-5v (or any voltage for that matter) from the board.   I have a tinycircuits protoboard, but it doesn't have a bottom connector so i can't sandwich that between the the screen and SD card module.  I feel like it should be possible to just tap into a specific connection without doing anything crazy, but any help at all is greatly appreciated

EDIT:  it looks like there are protoboards available with both top and bottom connectors.  I am going to order one of those and see if that fixes my issue, but any confirmation/input is still appreciated!

Protoboards should work well!

Unfortunately with how small and crowded the TinyScreen+ board is, it would be difficult to recommend a cleaner solution without using a protoboard.
