A Card for the Aurora Wings Mono Challenge

Good Morning Crafts well as I had this image already coloured before my problems started I decided I really ought to finish it of and make a card, and this months Challenges over on Facebook and on the Aurora Wings Challenge Blogspot are both to do with using Monotones and for this one especially I have used several shades of Blue.
This beautiful image is called "Woman with Gardenia and Pearls" and you will find her here. I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out with my Nestabilitie Labels Die No.1 with a fancy one cut out of blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Dare to be Different" digi paper set, and I have used three papers from this, the first a blue background with swirls on, the second a blue and white check and the third a dark blue with white spots on. I have also used a doily which was placed behind the two mounts.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle with a sentiment I stamped and mounted and this was put in the bottom right hand corner. And the final flourish are the pearls in the corners left.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:- (bottom line)
