Faux Mother-of-Pearl Fun Flowers Card

DivaIC138 - Faux Mother-of-Pearl Fun Flowers Card
The April issue of Stampin' Success went online today and I was fascinated by a technique that they had demonstrated in the magazine called Faux Mother-of-Pearl technique.  I had already cut out the Not Quite Navy flowers to place on the front of the card and thought, yes, this technique will really make a big difference in the flower.  What do you think?
This card is for three challenges.  The first is Utah Divas International diva sketch challenge #127
The second challenge was for Utah Divas International Diva Inspiration Challenge #138

And last but not least - StampinUpLateNightStampers Challenge 112 - Spring.
This card was so fun to make and we will be making it at our March 23rd card class.
