DCM - Frills

I was asked on Monday to make a card with a red/oriental theme & my mojo had gone. I tried everything but had no luck. Then, last night I came up with this. At 4pm today I popped over to see what the Friday dare was on DCM & hey presto, my card fits the criteria. So, sorry its cheating a bit, but I most certainly can't make another. I can think of loads of layouts, (if I only had the time) but cards are a no no. I'm suitably impressed with this one in view of the circumstances!!
Paper is DCWV, Far East. Blooms were pink edged & I coloured them completely red using my Whispers permanent markers. The scallops have holes punched out & black thin ribbon threaded. The bow is just tied & a glue dot holds it on. I added a piece of lace for a feminine touch.
