{ODD IDOL} Top 15!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who took the time to vote for your favorites in the Some Odd Girl Round 2 {ODD IDOL} competition!  I'm happy to say that I have made it to the TOP 15!
There were so many amazing creations... I was getting nervous during the voting days.  :)  Since the entries were anonymous and the voting was done blindly, I wasn't able to tell you which was mine... but now I can!

Some of you mentioned that you thought this was mine when you voted.... hee hee!  Thank you again for your votes!  I wanted to do something other than a card for this round, so I created an altered embroidery hoop.
Here's the unpainted, unfinished back side, but a 4" embroidery hoop none the less. :)  I covered the front with card stock and made my creation on the front just like I would on a card.  I love making dimensional things to hang on my walls.  They seem more permanent than a card sometimes.
I used {SWEET THINKIN' MAE} as my Some Odd Girl image.  I water colored her with Distress Inks and paper pieced her dress and bow.  I used some of the same papers for the flowers and background.  There's a bunch of die-cut items layered up on this piece.
She's got the sweetest face!  I just love her eyes.  I added a few highlights with a white ink gel pen.
I recently shared a photo tutorial {HERE} on how to make these 3D paper flowers.  I added a few mulberry paper flowers as well.  I tied the top of the hoop with a couple fancy ribbons and that was that!
I'm now busily and happily working on my Round 3 project....  The voting for this next round starts May 24th so I'll keep you posted.
Thank you so much for letting me share with you!
