Good morning peeps!  It's time again for the Avocado Arts Pit Crew Too to post a look at the July Stamp of the Month, Bold Beginnings.  I had a blast this month playing with this set, there are so many options - and when you combine it with other Avocado Arts stamps  . . . endless!

My other 2 posts, here and here showed you birthday cards so today I decided to use the set for something different, a wedding/anniversary card.

I started with the Avocado Style Border and Sentiment set and used the graphic border to stamp a background in black - don't you love that cool border? It was so easy to stamp too!

I "built" the cake from several of the cake building stamps in the set and added some pearls to dress it up even more. A bit of hand-dyed seam binding and some bling on the right edge finished it off!
