Monochrome Card For Stampin for the Weekend Challenge

Hello everyone! It’s Friday and time for a new challenge over at Stampin for the Weekend! And this week I hosted the challenge!!
Before I announce the new challenge, please go check out the challenge blog, and see if maybe you made the top 3 or is the winner of the last challenge! (St Valentine’s day)
Now for this bi-weekly challenge:
We would like to see you make a card/project in monochrome - (which is tones of one colour.)
Now here is my card for this challenge:

I think it’s the first blue card I made for a lady! 
All the other blue cards I made have been for men! This card is for a special friend of mine who’s birthday is coming up soon!!

I used a stamp a friend sent me, long, long ago. Already stamped on paper and I could just colour it!
I used my Copics to colour her:
E37, E 35, E33 and E53 - for her hair
E00, E21 and R20 - for her skin
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - for the bow in her hair, her top, bottom strip of her dress and her shoes 
B05, B02 and B00 - for all the blue on the image
W3 - for a shadow around the image.

I used blue gems to give the card some spark,
and used the tool a friend gave me, to make the swirls!

I wrote “Happy Birthday” in a dark blue and stuck it on ‘n pop-up.

I stuck a blue dotted ribbon with a pearl buckle at the bottom on the right side of the card.

Here is a close up picture of the pearl buckle.
