Leopard's Spots

Hey there, last card for tonight. This was one of those times I read through a challenge and thought I don't have any stamps that are safari animals.  Then I started brainstorming what do I have that will work. After a little internet research on leopard spots I noticed Avery Elle's Ikat Addition stamp set might work for this challenge.
I started with a natural ivory base card and layed out the curves with a bowl on my desk. Cut the curve by hand and traced a light pencil line to the inside of the card as a guideline for stamping. Stamped the spots in black and mustard ink with a little sponging of mustard ink over the top of the spots. I also sponges the Edge of the front panel. Finally I stamped the happy birthday from PTI Pen and Ink set on the front of the card. This made a pretty quick one layer card. Thanks for stopping by, Sue.

I also used the Fusion layout.
