Dies R Us September Challenge (Team A) "Back to School"

Hi there!
It's time once again for Dies R Us Challenge!  The theme this month for Team A is "Back to School"!  I can't believe it's time for all the kids to go back to school!  Whew, the summer just flew by! 
Ok, friends, get out those fabulous fun dies and have fun making a school themed card!  You have until September 13th to enter.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to the Dies R Us store!  So, come on over and join in on the fun!

For my card, I started with a brown card base.  It was then paired with Simple Stories paper.  The gold colored panel was embossed.  I used a digital stamp from Deasy Designs for the black board and sentiment.  The A+ and ruler are PTI stamps.  The owl and coordinating die, circle numbers, and September die are from Taylored Expressions.  The Globe is from Die-Versions.  And, the embossing folder is from Darice.  Glossy accents were added to the apple.  Twine and paper clip to finish off the card.

The dies listed above can be purchased at the Dies R Us Store.
And, here is the list of dies that I used today...
