Monochromatic Baby Card

Hi Friends, How are you this fine day? Today I'm sharing a card I made for a Monochromatic challenge at my Local Card Club meeting this coming Sunday. I looked thru my stash to get ideas for an all-one-color card and found this paper so, a baby card, it is!

 At first I used a card stock that was similar in color to the patterned paper and it was sooooo boring.  As soon as I put this SU Island Indigo with the patterned paper it popped!

 I used Mojo Monday # 360 Sketch from 8/25/14 and assembled all the layers and rounded the top right corner. A bow and a couple pearls finished it off.
A few challenges this fits are:

Pinspirational Challenge 124 Photo Inspiration, How perfect is this? I believe this image is on one of the papers from the Collection I used.
