Dramatic red and black

Today's card is for an order. I was told the person loves fashion so hope she likes this Simply Sassy image from Sugar Nellie. She has been coloured with Promarkers. Backing paper is from Papermania Portobello Road, the others are Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage. I made all the flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Flower die and some gems.
