Remnant Birthday Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Consider Your Remnants!
Yesterday I made a card with scrap strips and this was the "remnant" that remained after punching out the strips with the decorative label punch...
After I walked by this remnant for the second or third time, it began to occur to me that it was quite bright and fun...and might make a wonderful focal point for another card!  So, I added a strip or two more and cut around the scrap copy-weight paper and then popped the whole thing up on dimensionals and stamped the greeting from Sincere Salutations in Early Espresso and...ta da!  A new card was born from the remnants!  Here is a close-up of the popped up part...
The next time you are about to throw away your remnants, give them a second look...they may just be waiting for you to notice them :)
