Punches and Dies for Penny Black and More - July Challenge

Good morning all! Summer is here and with that my mojo decided to go on vacation LOL. But I do have a card to share today for our brand new JULY challenge at 
Penny Black and More.
  The theme this month is Punches and Dies. I hope you'll join us. As usual we have some fabulous prizes up for grabs from several generous sponsors - Penny Black, Whiff of Joy, Flonz, and Stix2.

Like I said my mojo has somewhat disappeared, so I just decided to get a little head start on my Christmas cards, as I know I will be needing it soon enough. 




My penny black stamp is from their clear set "Holly Jolly". I just love this cute scene with cat and mouse. The image has been colored using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. 
For my dies I used a scallop square nestablities shape, and the mini ticket die from Whimsy Stamps. The ticket sentiments are from Whimsy Stamps from the set "Holiday mini tickets". I used a corner rounder punch on the bottom part of the card.  It's a super simple card, I just embellished with a button and some gold cord.


I am entering my card to the following challenges:

Penny Black Saturday  - Christmas in July
Card Mania - Christmas in July 
 Merry Monday -Anything Christmas Goes 
Stamp and Create - Christmas in July 
Amusing Challenges -  Anything Goes  
  Christmas Card Challenges Anything Goes
The Squirrel & the Fox -Christmas in July 



 Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy your Sunday, and happy stamping!!
