Eight votes under three? Nice to see the "I think she cheated" voters still don't read the "how to vote" section. Great Idea, perfectly executed.

I like it. (I wish the puzzle pictures were just a little clearer - some localized contrast or sharpening adjustments could do it.) Good luck

Top 10. Most creative and well-executed. A slight ding for being slightly washed out on the main face but otherwise, great work.
