Back to School

This card might be a little late in most parts of the country, but here in my neck of the woods we have one more week before school starts.  I was inspired to make a clean & simple card by some cards I saw on Pinterest.  There's no die cutting involved in this card at all, which is kind of unusual for me!

The card base is regular black cardstock.  For the patterned paper, I knew I wanted it to look like a composition book, but I couldn't find any free digital papers, so I made my own paper by making a copy of a composition book I happened to have in the house and cutting it down to the size of a card mat.  I got the chalkboard tags a long time ago in the Target dollar bin, and then stamped the sentiment from Joy's Life with some white ink.  Super quick, and just the way it looked in my head.  :)

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
