Punches and Dies, Oh, My!

Doesn't this stamp make you think of the 60's? Maybe it was because I grew up in that era and even dressed like this to some degree. (I never wore a peace sign!) It was a time of Woodstock, Beatles, and rock and roll! I think I just told you my age! LOL! Back to present day, it is time to play along with The Paper Shelter Challenge. Our theme this week is is "Punches and Dies".  We want to see your card loaded up with all kind of embellishments from punches and dies! How fun is that? Remember! If you use a Paper Shelter Stamp (and why wouldn't you?) you could win up to $30 in prizes. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: "Tapestry" by Carole King
My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue
An everlasting vision of the ever-changing view
A wondrous, woven magic in bits of blue and gold
A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold
Once amid the soft silver sadness in the sky
There came a man of fortune, a drifter passing by
He wore a torn and tattered cloth around his leathered hide
And a coat of many colors, yellow-green on either side
He moved with some uncertainty, as if he didn't know
Just what he was there for, or where he ought to go
Once he reached for something golden hanging from a tree
And his hand came down empty
Soon within my tapestry along the rutted road
He sat down on a river rock and turned into a toad
It seemed that he had fallen into someone's wicked spell
And I wept to see him suffer, though I didn't know him well
As I watched in sorrow, there suddenly appeared
A figure gray and ghostly beneath a flowing beard
In times of deepest darkness, I've seen him dressed in black
Now my tapestry's unraveling - he's come to take me back
He's come to take me back
