Black, Red & White Flower Card

I made this card for Let's Ink It Up, Challenge #8!
The theme was "anything goes", but you had to use a stamp on your card, so I made a rather simple but striking card:
All I did was used black scrapbook paper for the background, then layered some more white and black over that, and the top-most one I stamped with a pretty flower stamp.  Since I haven't yet learned how to (nicely!) colour stamps in, I use my stamps in mono-colour, so that's what inspired me to make an all (well mostly!) black and white card.
At first I was going to tie a white organza ribbon around the card, because I really liked the all black & white theme...but then I also liked the black and red them...so this time the red ribbon won!  I slid through a little ribbon belt-buckle type thingy and tied a bow on the other side.
