Critter Easel Challenge

I'm so awful at anything other than a normal size card or scrapbook page. But I decided to take a challenge with my Critter gals. Our challenge was to create a easel card that had layers, something that glitters (my blue paper), ribbon, layers, and 4 different colors. We were also to color in our image. My frustration started because for some odd reason (never happened before) my Copics were smearing my ink. I use the same ink and paper all the time and this was a first. I'm not sure if it was because the image has more black lines than I'm used to or what.
Along with this I also followed the Critter Sketch Challenge blog's sketch (link to the right sidebar.) The blog is having it's first blog hop right now with tons of great give a ways. You have until Wednesday at 10am EST on Wednesday to play along.

Your easel card looks great, and I can't see the smearing, so you did a good job of managing the ink problem--mine does that sometimes, it seems to depend on the dampness in our home (and outside!).
