Karolyn Birthday Sampler 2-13
My sample features the Birthday Sampler stamp set, which is another amazing compilation of great birthday sentiments in Kim’s fun and whimsical handwriting.  No one does sentiments like Kim, in my opinion (but I might be a little biased Winking smile).  And this sentiment set is no exception!  I also used one of the “CHA release” stamp sets called Tri-balation to create the pattern on the card front.  It’s a great set full of amazing graphic shapes that can be combined to create fabulous patterns that are super trendy!  I see tribal-inspired patterns everywhere these days, so I’m so happy to be able to have the ability to recreate those patterns with this set!  I feel like the pattern I created here kind of looks like confetti, which is perfect for a birthday celebration, don’t you think?!

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today.  I’ll be back in a bit with my CAS(E) This Sketch sample, so I hope you’ll stop in again, soon!  Oh, and be sure and come back on Saturday to see if you’re the lucky winner of the Birthday Sampler set!
Smooches!
