Monochrome

Good evening!
My card today is for a blog-friend, who celebrates her birthday this weekend.
It is very purple, so it enters 2 monochromatic challenges: Cupcake Crafts and Ladybug Crafts Ink.
Other challenges:
Pear Tree Designs - Happy Birthday
Passion for Promarkers - In the Garden
Crafty Creations - In stitches
The ABC challenge - Q is for Quilting/sewing
Crafts and Me - Anythign goes

I coloured the image with 6 different shades of purple (Letraset Promarkers); the backing "quilt" is from the Capsule Collection (Docrafts); gems, candy and ribbon from my own stash.
