Last week I shared a graduation card I made for Billy. In addition to that milestone, Billy also attained the status of Eagle Scout. His project was a beautiful arbor and bench, fully landscaped and set on a walkway in town. The beautification committee has been working hard to spruce things up in town. The PGA tournament is being played next year at a local golf course, so everyone is working to 'paint the town'!

I couldn't let this big event for Billy pass without a card and gift. 

The card is CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from fellow Pal, Kim Jolley. I should have made the blue piece bigger to get better proportion, but I decided that I'm being an impressionist and just left it as is! I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlints for the flag. Remember, this detailed die requires the use of the Precision Plate. You can use the framelits without it, but removing the cardstock from the die is MUCH easier with the specialty plate.

The box is made from Real Red cardstock. I purchased a cut glass paperweight that features the head of an eagle. I measured it and designed the box for a perfect fit. I used Whisper White satin ribbon, a few scraps of Real Red and Night of Navy vintage ribbon and added a bit of sparkle with the sequin trim. I thought it matched the theme of the celebration, don't you?

Thanks for stopping. Be sure to pop back in next Tuesday when I'll be featuring a birthday card using Fruit Stand DSP. I love that stuff!

Until next time, take care,
