Giveaway: Custom Portrait by Paper Thin

I'm extra excited about this giveaway because it's being offered by our monthly *man* guest blogger, Keith Rein of Paper Thin Design. Keith's design studio offers many services including amazing wedding invites, graduation announcements, business cards, and of course, custom portraits. Keith is a talented artist with a quirky sense of humor and his work is definitely an extension of his unique character.
Keith is offering to one incredibly lucky D&OC reader a custom hand-drawn portrait in ink and watercolor. What you'd like that portrait to be is completely up to you. Here are some examples:










{all images via Paper Thin Design}
If the winner would rather have a printed portrait on canvas, as some of these examples show, Keith is offering that too at the discounted rate of $30 (these normally begin at $85).
The FREE hand drawn portrait is open to all readers!

How To Enter? (up to 3 entries)
1. Visit Paper Thin Design and tell me what you think.
2. Are you a follower/reader of D&OC? Great, you get a 2nd entry. Just say, "I'm a follower." Don't forget to leave a SEPARATE comment.
3. Tweet, Blog or Facebook about this giveaway and let me know you did! 3rd entry

Have a fantastic weekend!
xo,
Christina

I visited Paper Thin and I really like his theme of something old something new something borrowed something new. Cute and familiar. I think the portraits are beautiful. It took a while for me to realize how to navigate to see the next image...i'm always slow in the morning. Yay I'm excited about this giveaway.
