Top Tip Tuesday Challenge - Duo

Hi Crafters,
Some of you may have caught a glimpse of this card I am about to share with you when I had a slight boo - boo with the schedule button the other day. I wasn't quite quick enough to stop it posting on Facebook but these things happen and so here is my card for the new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday - 'Duo'.
This is what the dictionary says about the word 'duo'
(du ou, dyu ou)
n., pl. du os.
Two persons commonly associated with each other; couple, pair of performers,
Two things ordinarily placed or found together; a pair: a duo of lovebirds
for this challenge however it can also be:
Black and white
Scones and Jam
Sausage and mash
Lock and Key
...that type of thing.
I chose to use an image from our Sponsor All Dressed Up called Love My Sister.
All Dressed Up image - Love My Sister
Grand Labels One for the card base and frame
First Edition Love Letters papers
Spellbinders Oval Floral Die
Memory box Shrewsbury Stem, Chandra Stem and Heart Ribbon Dies
Joycrafts Bille's Flourishes 6002/0264 Die
Hobby House Pearls
Challenges I'd like to enter:
Sentimental Sundays - #256 Colour Inspiration Board
OSAAT - #235 ATG - with Daughters/Girls
 Our sponsor is offering two free digi's to the winner this week, let's see what duo's you can come up with, I look forward to checking them out.
See you soon,
