limelight 070: vintage inspired & scalloppy

hooray for another fabulous limelight papercrafts sketch, by the delightful mandy: this time the additional "challenge" that goes with the sketch is to incorporate scallops into our card design...something i am never opposed to doing! ok, actually i don't think that's what mandy meant, but don't they look YUMMY*??! not particularly useful in a papercrafting context though; maybe these work a bit better:
(patterned paper: prima, hambly, doodlebug, pink paislee; vintage image: the ephemera book; florals: prima; tissue tape: tim holtz; inks: ranger; embroidery floss: dmc; adhesives: tombow monorunner, uhu gluestick, gluedots)

a few other things i am always happy to include on my cards are: vintage images (whether real or, as in this case, faux), musical notes, text paper, prima florals and hand stitching... so just to be on the safe side i added ALL OF THOSE as well! :)

but how can YOU play along with the limelight sketch??!

here are THE DETAILS:

**Use the sketch provided and try to incorporate some SCALLOPS!
