This image has stayed in my mind. It's so beautiful, and so very well done on your part. I can understand the reason you received a first place. This is awesome!!!

It just goes to show that what you do with what you have is what counts. And, you have a lot of creativity and imagination and know how in your brain. Well done, Melinda, this is a beautiful creation.
