Thank A Hero (or Anyone)

Each month I try to send off 40 cards to Operation Write Home.  In each box, I include some "Thank You" cards expressing gratitude to those who serve our country.  Most of the cards which the service men and women will send back home are flat, not many embellishments, very mailable.   But the thank you cards don't have to be "mailable" because they are sent in a box.  They won't have to go through the machines at the post office.  So I add bulky embellishments on some.  Here is a CAS thank you card on which I added wooden stars.
The sentiment is by Paper MakeUp Stamps.  Their new challenge is to make a Thank You card.  (It does not have to be going to a deployed hero.)   Hope you will play along.  The challenge runs from March 24 to March 30.
Challenge I am entering:
Tuesday Throwdown - tic, tac, toe (die cuts, digi, cas)
Word Art Wednesday - anything
Sister Act - anything
Brown Sugar - anything
Through the Craft Room Door - anything
