Raise the Bar Challenge - Guest Bar-Tender

A couple of weeks ago, I was picked to be a 'Guest Bar-Tender' over at Raise the Bar...so, today I am joining them for their new challenge:

'A Couple of Things'
In honour of Valentine's Day next week, feature a couple...of people...or animals...or even bugs!

I've used a couple of bunnies, from one of my favourite Penny Black stamps - 'Bunny Friends' (I masked off the other bunnies before stamping). The papers are a mixture of 'Love Bandit' (Bo Bunny) and 'Ooh La La - for Her' (My Mind's Eye)...I thought the fresh 'Spring' colours would be a perfect match for the bunnies. I doodled some borders, added a couple of Prima flowers, held in place with a BasicGrey brad, and a sentiment (from the 'Sending Sunshine' set by Simon Says Stamp).


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from the fabulous DT, and other guest bar-tenders, please pop over to Raise the Bar.
