Poinsettias or Snow is Falling - Winter Wonderland Challenge for the 18th of November

The next two weeks on Winter Wonderland, we are hosted by me! :)
I have chosen the themes: Poinsettias or Snow is Falling.
So this means that you create a Christmas Project with the beautiful Christmas flowers Poinsettias, or you create a project where we can see that snow is falling, or snow has fallen. Or you can try and include both themes!

For this challenge, we have the wonderful sponsor:
Crafty Sentiments Designs, who are offering the lucky winner a choice of 3 digi stamps from their website

Please remember that to be in with a chance of winning a prize that it is Christmas Projects only.

So on to my card.

I have been waiting for the right moment to use this beautiful poinsettias stamp from the Poinsettia Stamp Set by Power Poppy.
Here is a close up of the colouring:

I stamped the poinsettia on to X-Press It card using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. I then coloured it with the following Copics Pens:
poinsettia - RV02, RV13, RV14, RV17, RV66, YG00, YG11, G21, pink Wink of Stella pen, yellow Wink of Stella pen
leaves of poinsettia - YG11, G21, G82, G94, G17, G99, green Wink of Stella pen
greenery - BG96, G29, green Wink of Stella pen
pomegranates - R83, R85, R89, pink Wink of Stella pen, yellow Wink of Stella pen
leaves of pomegranates - YG11, G82, G85, G99, green Wink of Stella pen
background - BV00, BV02

I have cut out the poinsettia with some of the background, so no real fussy cutting this week!

Then I have followed Sketch #438 from Sketch Saturday.

I have cut a piece of pink glitter cardstock from Core'dinations for the triangle and adhered it to a white card from Envelope Solutions. Then adhered the poinsettia on top. I have stamped the sentiment "Merry Christmas Wishes" from a new stamp set by Power Poppy - Simple Joys using Cottage Ivy Memento Ink in the bottom right corner. Then I have coloured some Rhinestones from KaiserCraft using my RV66 Copic pen and attached them to the card in the top right corner.

I suppose I had better show you the final card!
Here it is:

I hope that you can see the glittery sparkle on the colouring.
