Monday Funday #25 - circles & scallops

This weeks TGF Farm Fresh Monday Funday challenge is: circles & scallops.  I based this week's card on the Saturday Sketch challenge posted at TGF's SCS forum.  This week's sketch is #8.
The card base is Whisper White with layers of lilac, turquoise, and a scrap of sky paper.  The clouds and wavy border are Whisper White.  I free hand cut the clouds before embossing them with the large polka dots cuttlebug embossing folder.  The waves are made with the EK Success bubble border punch, then punched with the SU scalloped border punch.  I think it gives a fun foamy effect.  The ocean water is made by punching circles ranging from 1/8" to 3/4" from vellum, gluing to the turquoise, then embossing with the devine swirls embossing folder.  The image is TGF's Mermaid Anya and is colored with copic markers, then mounted with dimensionals.  I added a few highlights on her with the Sakura stardust clear gel pen and the Spica clear pen.  The finishing touches are a small white bow in the clouds, clear skittle bubbles in the water, and pearls in Anya's hair. 
Now, it's your turn.  What can you do with cirlces and scallops?  Maybe the sketch will inspire you too.  I can't wait to see what you do!  Thanks for looking!  April
