A little Punch drunk?

So here I am at home feeling a little bit sorry for myself with a stomach bug. I was passing the time having a read of A Passion for Papertrey and getting some great ideas for cards. As a newbie to the sites, I have never entered any of the challenges before.  So I thought I would give it a go seeing as I splurged on the sets recently.Feel a bit nervous....

So this month's challenge was to make a card using punches.

You may be wondering where the punches are...the pinwheel was made using cut outs from a circle punch, which were halved and the scalloped corners were made with chopped up pieces from scalloped circle punches. The keen eyed amongst you may recognise the paper I used in the corners of the card.I recycled some of the packaging strips off my Papertreyink sets. They were so lovely I couldn't let them go to waste!
