What to do with the leftover bit!

After I made the card (posted yesterday for Colour Throwdown Challenge) I was left with the pieces from inside the letters and the “negative” of the word. P1040784Using a couple of sticky notes I then sponged 1 cm stripes of colour on a piece of Whisper White the same size as the “negative” card piece. I adhered the “negative” in place ( you could use dimensionals here to raise it up a bit) then stamped the Birthday sentiment on some WW, punched it out with a Word Window punch and popped it on some Dimensionals under the word. Then I matted and mounted the whole piece as shown. Cool huh! Here is a closer look at the sponged stripes.
