C2CU Decades - 3+ layers

Hello everyone, thanks for coming by to say hi again!
It's the second part of our monthly challenge over at Crafts too Challenge you and we are continuing our decades/era theme with a new twist of 3 or more layers.
I was so glad when I had established the "more" part of this challenge as I was dreading the idea of sticking to 3 layers alone! To me that is 1 dp, 1 image and possibly a ribbon or a bunch of flowers! that's is just tooooooo hard for me!
My decade this time is the 1950s. Just gotta love the inspiration I drew from my fab Marianne's 1950s papers and Marianne's ribbon (from crafts too) I even cut the vintage tag from a sheet of fab vintage/kitchen style tags from Marianne's, so fab! My flowers are a mixture, most of them from WOC. My butterfly is little snippets again. My clip at the top has been primed with gesso then painted with acrylic paint and I have used a papertrey ink sentiment.
This Kenny K super mom stamp screams the 50s to me, I just love her pinny (apron) and I have coloured her with prisma pencils.
I think the max amount of layers in any one part is actually 5 here including my 2 dp, cheesecloth and image. My tag, sentiment and flowers are all seperate from each other, ooo yes and I didn't count my pearls, see I couldn't have stuck to 3 layers if I tried!
Thanks again for coming by my blog lovely folks!
Big hugs
