Black, White and a Touch of Pink

I checked out the Mojo Monday Blog and just loved the sketch they had, so here is my take.  The picture is horrible, partly because I'm not a photographer and mostly because it was taken at night on my dining room table. I stamped the paper behind the flower I made with a Tim Holtz Papillon stamp. The sentiment is from a stamp set I bought at Joann's when I first started card making!  The papers are the same ones I used for my Girly Steampunk card. I was able to get away with using mostly scraps!

The pink strip of paper is distressed with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I am in desperate need of ribbon! The card would look so much better with pink ribbon and black ribbon, but paper had to substitute.  My crafty allowance this month will be taken up with a few Copics and, sadly a new paper trimmer. Boo:(. 
I really like how this card looks IRL. It looks so elegant. Thanks for looking and have a fabulous rest of the weekend! Tomorrow I have some exciting news that I have been waiting to share with everyone, so stay tuned!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
