All white AND an easel card!

Happy Sunday evening, fellow bloggers!  I am here now to share my very first easel card with you:

I made this for the Winter Wonderland challenge for this week.  I was channeling my inner Kittie Caracciolo with this card, I think.  Now mind you, mine is nowhere NEAR the intricacy of Kittie's cards, but I was thinking of her as I used my stylus on the petals and leaves of the poinsettia.  This time I decided to leave it all white, and in doing so, I knew I needed more texture to define the different areas better.  I hope I have done so effectively!  You can't see it in the pic, but I added some glitter to the center with the pearls.  I was debating whether or not to add more glitter to the flower or around the edges of the card, but I haven't as yet.  Being my first easel card, I kept it pretty simple.  I used Labels Eight as my shape, and the Decorative Swirls ef on the next layer for my texture.  A combination of small and large ovals were used for the sentiment, which is from the Vintage Christmas set from The Paper Company. 
Well, I hope you all enjoy your week!  I go back to work tomorrow, but have off again Tuesday.  See you soon!
