Check out my card below:

STAMPS: Apple (StampinUp!). Sentiment (Hampton Art).
PAPER: Kraft and red cardstock.  DP -Old, old from my stash.
INK: Tuxedo Black and Ladybug Red (Memento).
EXTRAS: Basket die (Impression Obsession); Double bow die (Impression Obsession); Notebook paper die (Lil' Inker Designs); Banner die (Reverse Confetti); "You" die (Simon Says); red mini clothespin, red button dot.

I appear to be lacking in the back-to-school stamp category.  I believe it is due to my testosterone dominated household.  Somehow things like this are lost on the young male gender.  Go figure. LOL  So I had to raid my stash of scrapbook paper for their school scrapbooks (no, not finished yet, even though they are almost done with college). 

I chose the freestyle collage method from The Card Concept for my card.  My background paper reminded me of a chalkboard.  And I wanted to incorporate some notebook paper using my notebook die, so I figured collage style was the way to go.
