Civilization and Punches

You might wonder what this has got to do with each other .... this is the new challenge Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply challenge: Punches within the cycle of celebrating the Ancient Ages this month. Oh dear, this was a challenege because I do not really use punches, I only own a handful of them mainly edge punches. But I have a very good friend and colleague Jane who is the papercraft wizard in the office and she helped me. She came with a bag full of punches for me to choose ... thank you so much, Jane. Otherwise it would have been a real struggle ... well, it still was difficult.
This week all students went back to school in England. All dads and mums had been talking about this event for the whole of last week so I thought it would be an appropriate topic for my card
I chose one of the old greek scholars as focal point for the digital collage: Pythagoras. This reminds me very much of my schooltime struggling with geometry - it was not my favourite subject (lol). The card consists of various layers of kraftcard and patterned paper from Cosmo Cricket. All images are from educational web sites. I used edge, circle and a corner punch, a label punch in the inside of the card ... and, of course, the apple for the teacher which is a punch as well

If you like punches you will love this challenge and if you don't feel so comfortable with them, have a go anyway. I realised it is great fun and I maybe need to consider to get, well, some more punches (lol), happy Wednesday, Petra.
