My Fiverr Experience: Fiverr Part 2: Electric Boogaloo
Ok, so in a case of clearly getting what you paid for, my experience with Fiverr is decidedly mixed.
I am not too embarrassed to say that I was disappointed with the results. I am embarrassed enough to NOT display what I ended up paying $10 for.
So what did I do? In the ultimate display of my cheapness, I used a FREE online vector editing system that I like: Aviary.

I was able to find a FREE commercial use font that had the DIY aesthetic I was going for (hand written!) 
I downloaded the font and was able to use Aviary to create a simple vector file, which I imagine is somewhat akin to a FREE version of Photoshop online.
From there, I created several versions including the one you see if you scroll to the top of the page using a GREAT online photo editor: Lunapic.
Back to Fiverr. While I was disappointed with my results, I was not disappointed in the system. 
Using Paypal in such a manner for easily completed tasks is a great idea. I can see other one-time uses making it a great option but when you want something done graphically as any designer will tell you "don't skimp." 
Or at least, consider doing it yourself.
