Dies and Punches

Did anyone else grow up in the late 50's/60's in a small town that had a soda shop? I did, it was called "The President". It had booths that had tiny jute boxes with the top 50's songs. You were served shakes and malts  in glasses that are exactly like this digi image. You were also given the metal mixing cup to keep filling up your shake up. I can remember feeling so grown up when I was finally allowed to walk there with a girlfriend by myself.  So I tried to color this wonderful Paper Shelter image with the memories I have of this place. 
Our challenge this time at THE PAPER SHELTER  is Dies and Punches. Show us your beautiful dies and punches. Remember if you use a Paper Shelter Image (and why wouldn't you?) you can win $30 to spend at their store! So hop on over to THE PAPER SHELTER grab your favorite image and play along. Be sure and check out my team mates lovely creations. You will be glad you did!
I colored my image with Copics. The DP is from my stash and has been hanging around for a year or two.  The die cut notes is also one I have had for bit and I have not used it nearly as often as I should. The paper lace is from CC Designs. I added some pretty rhinestones and liquid glass to finish off my card.
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: (Petula Clark)
When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go, downtown
When you've got worries all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help I know, downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk, where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose? The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
