Play Date Cafe Splash Challenge

These splash challenges (black and white with a splash of ____) have become some of my favorite ones at the Play Date Cafe. This week we are to use a splash of red, and I knew just what I wanted to do.  What's black and white and read all over?  Text and music:


supplies: white, red and black card stock, music paper found at a flea market, PTI Beautiful Blooms II #! flower dies, Hero Arts CG125 Friend Definition, CL371 Essential Messages, versafine onyx black ink, CG102 Antique Brocade, Adirondack cranberry ink, red heart button, white twine

I've done a similar design several times before, and this is a mix of both of them.  Here's the photo inspiration:


And since the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is Anything Goes, I'll enter it there also.
