Using up the offcuts

I seem to have a little (or sometimes BIG) pile of offcuts always sitting on my desk.  Bits and pieces of cardstock, patterned paper and stamped and/or inked thingamies that usually sit there until I either use them up, organise them into colour families in my scraps folder, or bin them.  This offcut didn't even make it to the pile - it got put onto a card IMMEDIATELY!  (If you saw my post yesterday, you'll know exactly where it came from!)


I'll be submitting this card to the Hero Arts Birthday challenge in the Rainbow category  and to Avery Elle's AEI♥U Challenge # 1 - Birthday.
