Default Using curves to create 3D

Hi,

I am trying to make a logo 3D.
I have put an image of it on the image plane and traced the edges with the EP curve tool.

How do I now make it 3D??
i.e. Add surfaces to it?

Thanks,

Very Stuck!

lots of options
1) duplicate and move up to desired height and loft between each set of 2 cures

2)use bevel plus tool and tweak with the settings
