Monotone but not blue

This is my card for the challenge at Totally Gorjuss which has a monotone challenge. I am really trying to up my game and improve my cards but I've still not got it right yet. I have made this card with a neighbours daughter in mind as she will 13 I think, not 100% sure but I'm sure she'll appreciate it anyway 12 or 13, well I hope so anyway.

Saturday secret crafter challenge has a musical theme and as I kept having There must be an angel by Ann Lenox popping into my head whilst making this card I will enter their challenge too.

Stamp something has a blue and white theme challenge, I know I haven't much white but there is a little bit so hopefully enough to count.

One stop craft challenge has a theme of fancy borders and corners and I have a few of those so hopefully I can enter that challenge too.

Last but by no means least the layout is from the challenge over at Stampin for the weekend. I really liked this sketch and found it quite easy to work with, maybe there's hope for me yet and I am improving , well a little bit anyway. Hope you like my card. Constructive critism always welcome anything to help me improve is welcomed with open ears and a willing heart, though I might not be able to comply without a little practice, but thankyou in advance.

This is so beautiful Julye. The faux stitching is gorgeous and your bow is immaculate! (wish I could tie them like that). A wonderful image and I love the inside decoration.
