OWH S&S Sketch Challenge 29

Here is my take on the sketch challenge over at Operation Write Home (OWH).  It's a wonderful organization that I support by making and donating cards to our hero's in the military.  It must make them feel good inside to be able to send a homemade card home to their loved ones.  It's almost time for school to start and here is my card and the sketch. 

I went with a back to school theme.  The background DP is Check Him Out by ? and I found it at Hobby Lobby.  The manufacturer's label must be on the piece I cut and glued down...oops!  The piece of pencil DP is The Homework Collection by Cosmo Cricket.  The piece that looks like a piece of notebook paper is the opposite side of the pencils.  I love it when a piece of DP has 2 great sides.  It's like getting 2 for the price of 1 and who doesn't love a bargain?  I colored some hole reinforcers with a Copic marker and added them to the paper to look more like a piece of notebook paper.  The sentiment is from Greetings by TPC Studio.  I think the paper clip adds just the right finishing touch.  I really like this sketch and plan to use it again.

 Thanks for stopping by today!
