This is the first contest I have ever entered…kind of blown away that it would place. Although I’m not much into the Dark Arts, I guess my mind can go that way if I need it to. lol.

good job winners! :D i love the first place entry—very creative and professional looking—it looks as if it could be a poster in a window of B&B or an advertisement in a magazine or something :)
