Retirement Banner

We are having a retirement party for my dad next month and, lucky for me, I was put in charge of decorations.  I've been playing around with a few different ideas but here is what I came up with so far.

  Recipe for Banner--  Birthday Bash Cart-  Pendants-  9in
                                           StoryBook cart-    letters  2in
                                           Accent Essentials   pointed circle  3in.
                                           Stampin Up cardstock
                                           The ribbons are from my stash
                                            Martha Stewart Scoreboard

I also made a badge for him to wear.
 Recipe for badge
          NiftyFifties-   letters   .75in
          Accent Essentials-     circles  3.5 & 3 in,  pointed circle 5.5in
           Cuttlebug  Robotz  Embossing folder
          Stampin Up cardstock
           The ribbons are from my stash
           Martha Stewart Scoreboard

The Rossettes on both projects are 4 inches, here's a  link to the how-to video I used to make the rosettes. 

There's 3  Challenges I'm entering these projects in  the first  is My Sheri's Crafts- Party Favors #65,    My Craft Spot  - Emboss it! , and Paper Cutz challenge - Anything goes
