I think you just took the frame off--don't see anything else different. Good idea, I think, for submission here. Best of luck this time.

I saw your wonderful finalist this afternoon but BP was working so slowly I wasn't getting any comments in to speak of :) I think it should have gone gold, but I'm just glad you got a little recognition for the wonderful work you did on this.
