Golden Egg Cardmakers Challenge

What a title! But there is a reason.  The TAC Savvy Projects Blog is hopping today challenge!   The prerequisites are:

1. GLITTER ~ Prisma glitter or glitter pens … it just has to have glitter! 
2. LAYERS ~ At least 3! 
3. COLOR ~ At least 3 colors or more! Ink, prisma pencils, copics, etc. 
4. RIBBON or SCRAPPERS FLOSS
5. FLOWERS ~ At least 1!

I decided to take up the challenge and here's my entry! And the layout or sketch design is by Heather Scott and it will be used for the Card a Day in May special.


Do I have enough layers?  I count 5 not counting the ribbon.  I used DCWV Pastel pack , Ivory Cardstock Strips, and white Premium cardstock (forgot about the white Caboodle paper which is great with Copics!)
I have a flower.... it's a beautiful stamp from the Sunshine set.  I'm not sure if the stamped flower qualifies me for this challenge, though.  I was thinking of adding more but then I thought... Overkill.

,

The flower is colored with the following Copic markers: Y23, Y32, Y35, E35, and E37.  So, I used more than 3 colors!

I also used marker YG03 on the edge of the 2 1/2" punched circle before edging again with black ink.


Can you see where I used the Stardust Clear Gel pen on the flower petals?  You KNOW this is my favorite bling maker....

So, what do you think?  I really value your comments or rating, whichever you feel most comfortable on doing.
