Thanks medallion card for VLV challenge

For the Viva la Verve! May week 3 sketch challenge:
I had a lot of fun trying something different with this one.  I cut the little eyelet-looking yellow strips with a border cut in the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge and adhered them side by side on black cardstock to make a patterned panel.  Then I cut three strips slightly larger using the same pattern to make the medallion.  The yellow paper is Fancy Pants Beach Bum, the others are MME Stella and Rose.  I wrapped some black cording around the top and bottom of the smaller panel.  
The "thanks" stamp is from Verve's Circular Sayings set, stamped and die cut with the Charmed Oval dies, and flat-backed pearls in 3 and 4 mm added.  The smaller panel is popped, and the height of the medallion is probably close to 3/8", so this is definitely a thick one at highest point.
Thanks for looking!
