Johnson & Wales

My son is in the process of looking at colleges to attend next year. Yes, next year I will have three in college at the same time! Last weekend my son Stephen and my husband went to Johnson & Wales in Rhode Island. Stephen really wants to go to the culinary program that they offer. This is a card that I made for the head of admissions as a thank you for taking the time and meeting with Stephen last weekend. She was very helpful giving him advice.
Stephen told me that the school colors were gold and blue, so here's what I came up with. I used the chef from Viola, night of navy & brushed gold card stock. I used my cuttlebug embossing folder on the brushed gold panel to the side of the chef, wow, i haven't used the cb in a long time! The covered tray is on a brad and slides to say Thank You.
thanks for looking and have a great day!

PS...If any of you have an "in" at Johnson and Wales will you put in a good word for my son? He's a great kid! This is the son who bought me a stamp set! LOL!

Neat card. I can't believe you haven't used your CB in awhile. I love mine. :)

I love your card, and I'm sure that the admissions gal will as well.

My daughter is 13 and has been talking about culinary for about 4 years now, so I'm thinking it's the way she'll go. She keeps saying R.I. is where she wants to go. I know that there is a new school in NY, but I'd rather have her in R.I. too :) Best of luck to your son.

What a cute idea! And you know you're totally responsible for me buying this set, right? I also looked at J&W for college, but ended up staying home and going to the U in my hometown.
