I liked Glarbage's simplicity, but in the end I'm going with Kuda. It caught my eye faster and the sandy, cloudy background provided a nice flow. The flowers were alao a nice touch. Only thing that was off was the black borders and the fact that the hourglass stood out too awkwardly while the castle was hard to see.
I know when I've lost orz. k0n's was much more calm and followed the beauty theme better through lighting and less gaudy effects. And the idea of placing the rainbow through the bubbles was a great one
Also, the theme should have been "Rainbow" and the style should have been "Beauty."
I'll be back next year! *puts on flowing cape and walks off*
