Happy Birthday, Brynn! And blog candy!

Welcome to your final stop on Brynn's Birthday Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Sandra's blog at 365 Days of Cricut. If you are swinging by my blog today and haven't checked out the blog hop, go to Brynn's blog to start.

In honor of the 30th birthday of the amazing Brynn, here is a birthday card in her favorite colors: pink, black, white and silver.


Not only is this a special birthday card because of the special honoree, but this is my first project made with an incredible new line, Authentique Paper. The striped and newsprint papers are from the 6x6 paper pad in the Uncommon Collection, and the type stickers are from the Blissful Collection. How awesome are they? And the price point is amazing, too.

In fact, I am giving away an Authentique 6x6 paper pad to one lucky reader! Simply become a follower of my blog and leave a comment here with your contact info before midnight on Saturday, July 2, 2011. I will pick one winner. If you are already a follower (first of all, thank you!), just let me know in the comment.

Oh, and the inspiration for this card is from a sketch in the first Quick Quotes Link-up. How cool is Rhonda's sketch?

  21. Oh Rachel - i LOVE this card - everything about it sings to me! Definitely going to have to check out that new line! I am a new follower - i think - if Blogger will behave. I have your blog on my list in case you don't show up on my dashboard - for some reason Blogger either won't let me follow new blogs or it lets me but they don't show up on my DB. thanks for the fabulous inspiration. I will definitely be visiting often!
