Check This Out! Two Challenges in One

The current Lawnscaping Challenge is 'Back to School'. Well, I'm never going back to school again. [Grad school -- once is enough!] And since I don't have any human children, I wasn't sure what I would do for the challenge and thought about skipping it. But, thanks to a lot of the inspiration pieces using the Dewey Decimal kit, I decided to bust it out since I have it and take a stab at the challenge. I also decided to combine it with the current Freshly Made Sketch, #148. So, here's my creation.

Check This Out! One for the books library card.

I love the little library card. Stamped on ivory in brown to give a more worn look. I remember these things from grade school before electronic check outs. I used the Check It Out sentiment along with a few sentiments form a Studio Calico date/time rotary stamp. Really going for the "this is awesome" feel. And I added the month and year too. I love that the stamps are off-kilter, just like a librarian in a rush would do. I think it's a little busy overall, but I still really like it.
