Ladies and Gentlemen!

It’s my birthday today, which means the contest is over and today I will be giving away a doll to one of the finalists! The winning card will be randomly selected from these really awesome cards, four of which are entirely hand-made while one is vintage. Stand by for the announcement this evening! Good luck to the finalists!

    Congratulations to the finalists!
    And happy birthday Marina!

    To bad for me that I didn’t managed to get in the five. But I’m really glad I managed to get in the 50, and lastly in the 10! I was so close.
    I did well so far.
    I’m really happy you considered my card could be a winner.
    I’ll try harder next year.

    Hope you have a wonderful day!
