Fabric 8 competition by Robert Kaufman and Spoonflower

I am trilled to share with all of you  that I have been selected from Robert Kaufman and Spoon flower  Fabric 8 global contest as semifinalist from over 750 designers, I am with the top 100 selected!!

I have submitted a design called Amsterdam in love. 
With this design I wanted to pay a tribute to the country that has given me so much love.
Representing the most important city of The Netherlands. 
I wanted to create something with lots of details. The design has a lot of elements important in my life, of course my love and me are there, my doggies Maya and Camila, and my cat Prunilla. This design has a lot of me!
I hand-painted it with watercolor and ink which is the theme of this competition.

"Fabric8 is a competition to discover eight of the world's best amateur textile designers, one of whom will be chosen to develop a new collection for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. Judges have chosen 100 semifinalists from a pool of over 750 entries. Until May 9th, cast your votes to help select the top 8 designers"

I really need your support with your vote  because  between 3-9   May, audiences around the world will vote for their favorite design in the Spponflower site.
Those votes will determine the final eight designers, each of whom will be asked to develop a collection of eight fabrics based on their original designs by June 5, 2012.
