Avery Elle Fanfare & Giveaway winner

I absolutely love the new Fanfare stamp set from Avery Elle. There's a beautiful
 border stamp that reminds me of Japanese prints depicting waves. 
I couldn't wait to get inky and make some cards.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to line up the design to create
the "wave" pattern. I think this is such a versatile stamp that can be used
for different occasions just by changing the ink and sentiment.

On the second card, I stamped the border on the side and paired it 
with the circular design that comes in the set. I put together the sentiment
and now I have a masculine birthday card on hand. 
Maybe I shouldn't have added the pearls...
