What's black and white, and red.. a little bit?

This is my entry in the Shabby Tea Room challenge, here is the inspiration photo they provided.
I don't have any black and white polka dot patterned paper.  No troubles.  I made my own using a 1" circle punch.  I used a Versa Color Cube, in Bark, around the edges.  Again, I took out my Martha Stewart scallop dot border punch, to do those strips.  The actual card is made of Botany, (very similar to Kraft).  Some 1/8" wide, black satin ribbon. The paper with text, is some 12x12 paper that I trimmed.  I added a black, adhesive pearl to the centre of that sweet silk poppy.
Showed this card to hubby, and he said it looked like a garter :(  No, I told him, lace is very big in card making at the moment.  Really!
Ah, they just don't get it do they? ;)  Now I have been a *bit* clever, and also entered this for the PDCC#71 challenge they are having over at the The Play Date Cafe.  Those folks were having a challenge with black and white, and a splash of colour!!  Here is the inspiration graphic.
ha ha, I can combine the two I thought.  And so did a few of you other lovely ladies ;)  Well, that's it from me.  Off to pop this card on the linkies.
