Yeah, its just for fun, but Check This Out!!

Hi Everyone! Ok, so the other day, I was in Walmart looking for ideas for my son's 6th birthday party and I came across the neatest punch set from Martha Stewart Crafts! I knew I just Had to have it, but, I needed to be wise about money seeing how I was in the final stages of putting together a birthday bash... Well, I ended up needed less party stuff than I had first thought, so I went back to Walmart and treated myself to this awesome punch set. It is a corner punch and edge punch, and with a little bit of talent, you can create a square shaped background that is punched all around, I still need practice. lol ...
While working on a different project, this basic idea came to me, and after we were back from swimming lessons and eating dinner, I tried to get the idea dwelling in my head out onto paper, and this is what I came up with. I am really curious to hear what you all think! This project is also my entry for the Moxie Fab World Gradient challenge. Go check out that blog and be inspired by the amazing examples they are displaying there!
