but it is my chief duty to accomplish small
tasks as if they were great and noble."

Calendar Girls August Challenge

Our challenge this month, from Paola, was....

Hello Calendar Girls ♥
for the month of August, I would like to challenge everyone to embrace the PUNCH ART tecnique...yup, dust off your punches Ladies!
Please feel free to use a stamped sentiment of your choice , but the main focus is being creative, using punches .

My card is very simple as once again the 28th caught me by surprise.  I saw this design on SCS several years ago and wanted to reproduce it for this challenge because I really like the simplicity of it and it could be used for any occasion.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please see my sidebar for all the Calendars Girls blogs and check out their creations.
