Pink and Black plus One

Thanks to Rainbow Lady for having pink in her challenge! To be combined with black & 1 other colour. Two firsts here -for ages I've wanted to give a spiral jotter a new lease of life & I've been wondering how to make those cheery ribbon flowers. This was great fun to create!
