Thank you for all that you do - CAS-tastic Wednesday Challenge

Howdy! I've got a CAS-tastic Wednesday challenge for you! This week we have a sketch and we'd love to have you play along! Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

My card base is MFT Whip Cream card stock. Next there's a layer of Fossil card stock using the Jumbo Scallop Die-namics Die and some paper from Basic Grey's Kraft Basics 6 x 6 pad. I've added a strip of denim from an old pair of DH's jeans (thanks, honey!) and some MFT twill. The sentiment was stamped on some Basic Grey Manilla Basics with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and an image from MFT's Thanks a Bunch set, cut out with a Deckled Edge Nestablities die and popped up on Pop Dots. Finally, I added some buttons from MFT's Earth Girl Collection, tied on with twine.

I hope you'll play along with the CAS-tastic Challenge this week, and don't forget to check out my team mates' creations :)
