GS67 CPS196 - Scalloped thanks!

This card was inspired by a combo of two current sketch challenges - The main part of the card from the Get Sketchy #67 and the sentiment area from Card Positioning Systems Sketch 196.
A few months back I had a Scallop tutorial featured on the Create blog and I made several scallop strips and accented the ends with copper tape (found in the stained glass section of your hobby store).  I really like making extras of things when I'm in a crafting mood- then I always have stuff to play with later without the effort.
I couldn't resist the swirls in the CPS sketch so I used Prima gems to get that look and finished off with some hand-dyed seam binding.  The patterned papers are Basic Grey and the sentiment is from SU!
So the other day I was holding Caleb's new lizard and I commented, "He's as light as a feather." - Caleb replied, "Yes and he's as cute as a mullosk."  (Did you realize that a slug is a mullosk?  Caleb tried twice unsuccessfully to keep a slug as a pet - I think we will be more successful with the lizard) - Wanna see a pic of the little guy?
Told ya he was cute!!
