Anyway I ran across a challenge (actually two of them) that said piece it together, or use scraps, and put something broken back together. Well I thought the paper had broken from its parent 12x12 sheet and was now an odd piece so I could use that.
I got the idea to use little squares from a mosaic scrapbook layout I had created so I began to punch any black scrap of paper I could find starting with the smallest of pieces. I ended up with way more than I needed and then I thought to do the same with my leftover white, red and green. All scraps from making Christmas cards all week.
I do tend to give a big yipee to myself when things go well on the first attempt. Doesn't happen often so I savor every moment when it does (heh he).
