Torendi People's Choice 3rd & Last Round - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!!!

Note - This post will stay at the top until Nov. 3. 
Please scroll down for the most recent post.

Edit:  Thank you to everyone that voted in the competition.  It was brought to the Torendi team's attention that there were ways to cheat the system and vote multiple times.  So, as a result, the poll was taken down.  They will be figuring out another way to choose their team.  If anyone out there has a suggestion for how they can impartially make their choice, please pass it on.  Not that I wanted an outcome like this but whew!  It does make me feel a bit better that it really may not have been that my card was THAT much worse than the others.  Thank you again to every one of you that voted for me.  I am soooooooo humbled!  I'll keep you posted on the outcome. 

It's the third and final round of Torendi's People's Choice competition. 

Thank you to all who have voted for me in the first 2 rounds!!  Now I REALLY need everyone's support this round because only the top 2 vote getters will get the coveted Design Team positions. 

I absolutely love the whole Momiji / Kawaii / Japanese Pop Culture papercrafting scene and Torendi's blog itself and to be a part of their amazing Design Team would be beyond AWESOME!!! 

So, here's my final entry.  Whadayathink? 

I had a couple of other "punny" ideas rattling around in my head like the last couple entries I made but something just drew me to making this balloon. 

I drew and cut out a balloon and then glittered each section with that yummy Martha Stewart super fine glitter.  IRL this balloon is just about the most sparkly, bright, gorgeous thing you've ever seen! 

And, can you tell the balloon is the front flap of the card with the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper as the back/inside flap of the card?

I'm loving my little woven basket, too. 

The little paper airplane flying out from behind the balloon is a nod to Torendi's logo.

Of course, had to make it sparkly to compete with the balloon.

The card sentiment, "rethink" is actually from the barcode strip off one of the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love papers.  How's that for rethinking?  Ha ha ha!

Details: Paper - Cosmo Cricket, American Crafts, DCWV, Bazzill; Martha Stewart fine glitter; Stickles; unknown wire.


Only the top 2 vote getters will be offered the Torendi Design Team positions and I would REALLY love to be one of them.  So I really, Really, REALLY, R-E-A-L-L-Y need your votes.

All I'm asking is for 3 clicks from once HERE, then once on the Torendi sidebar to select my name (Heidi Myers), and then a third click on "VOTE". 

Please?  Please?  Please?  With sugar on top?  And a cherry?  How about with some Edward on top?  That's my brand of sugar!!!  Or some cherry-licious Jacob?   But I digress.

Thank you ever so much for all your support!!!

Humbly yours,
