Gift for a bunny lover

I made this candle mat for my sister for Christmas. She was a bunny person before she became a cat person...she now has four kitties and one house rabbit, and i try to balance all the kitty-themed gifts with at least a few bunny-themed gifts. It's a commercial pattern, but i modified it...changed the flower color to blue since that's my sister's favorite color (unfortunately i didn't have any royal blue, which is her most favorite color, at the time...just discovered a wonderful stash of them on Sue Spargo's site), used beads instead of french knots for embellishment, and changed the bunnies from all-white to a more realistic brown and grey.
