"Thinking of You" Card -- Not Quite Cajun Breezes

OK gals, lots of great news later on down this post so hang in there with me, alright?
But first of all,
This week our color combo at The Color Dare is Not Quite Navy, Cajun Craze and Baja Breeze.
I wasn't quite sure what to do with this combo until I found this great SEI paper in my stash.  You can't see the metallic reflections of the paper well in this photo but it really goes well with this great flower from Recollections, which also has a kind of sheen.

Here are the other challenges:
Make it Monday #40
Papertake Weekly Anything Goes
Paper Play #22 "Summer Citrus Splah" - orange
DYSU #22 Orange
Crazy 4 Challenges #90 Photo Inspiration

Materials Used on this Card:
Cardstock {DCWV, Papertrey Ink}
Patterned paper {SEI "Bohemia" collection}
Sentiment/ flourish stamps {Anna Griffin}
Embossing powders, superfine clear and gold {Ranger}
Flower {Recollections}
Orange jewel {e. by Prima Marketing}
Apron lace edge punch {Fiskars}

Also I want to remind everyone to check out
