Let's Get Back To School

It's Back To School Time, so I made a card in honor of school! This card is for a co worker to give to her newphew, who just started first grade.

I used the sketch at Some Odd Girl for card design, but I changed one shape (pencil) and changed the direction of that piece of the sketch. The apple image is from Inktegrity. The pencil image if from the Kidz Korner section of Shelly's Images.The images at Kidz Korner are hand drawn by Shelly's daughter, Taylor, and they are too cute! If you haven't checked out Shelly's Images, and Kidz Korner, you are missing out! I colored both images with Promarkers. The DP and the awesome ruler ribbon are from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
