Back to School

Most of my grandchildren are back to school.   Some started the second week in August , some the week before Labor Day Weekend and two will start next week.  Time got away from me so I am just now making back to school cards for all of them.
I just made this one last night.  The images are by Diane's Daydream Designs.
In fact, everything except the twine and cardstock base is from the School Days set.  Yes, even the buttons which I cut out with MFT button dies after I printed out the buttons.
The sentiment in printed onto the chalk board with a computer font and then I smudged a little white pigment ink onto the board.  The books are popped up a bit with a few layers of cardstock.  I didn't want too much dimension because the card will be mailed.
The base looks black which looks okay in the photo but it really is blue to go along with the blues in the BG paper, buttons, and books.
