CAS card

Happy Wednesday morning,
Firstly a big welcome to my new followers, love to have you here and hope you will come by often.
Woke up to a beautiful summer morning...still fresh after rain yesterday... again a heavy thunderstorm although not as bad as the day before. In the early mornings there is a definite freshness that makes one think of autumn...and the trees are starting to drop lots of leaves...but we still have some very hot days ahead and with all the rain it has been humid as well.   OK weather over... onto business.
Today's card is for the DS4J challenge CAS
We were required to use the following:
1 image
1 patterned paper
1 plain paper
1 embellishment
Now CAS is not my "cup of tea", but I have always wanted to use Chef Henri, so thought I would give hime an outing, so this is what I came up with:

I punched the corners of burgundy cardstock, matted  onto my card . Printed the image..Chef Henri onto watercolour paper and coloured with Distress inks, cut out with a Nestability die, mounted that slightly over a DP....sorry no name...also cut with a Nestability.
The embekishment is made up of 2 buttons tied together with twine..

I hope you will hop on over to see all the lovely cards made by the other DT members, play with and show us your creation. You do not need to have a DS4J image, but you get an extra chance if you do use one.
I will be entering this into a few challenges;
The Crazy challenge..use a die or punch
Dream Valley Challenges .....Masculine
The Paper Players...CAS Masculine 
That's my story for today have fun and see you soon.
