No accessories, is that possible?

Have you ever made a card with no accessories? Just cardstock and ink? I do not think I have and then a friend one of my online friends issued a challenge. Make a card using only cardstock and ink, no tools, no accessories nothing! I thought, no way can I do that. Then it all came to me, I needed a birthday card from my friend's son and I knew I wanted to use the pickup from Loads of Love. Here is what I came up with:

Cardstock: Kraft; Ink: Basic Black, Tango Tangerine; Old Olive; Chocolate Chip, Ballet Blue and Real Red. Stamps: Loads of Love, Wild About You, It's Your Birthday (?).


I tried to mask the truck so it looked like the giraffe and trees were behind it. And I may have cheated a little and used a sponge to sponge in some "sky" and "grass". But it needed a little something at the top. I was pretty pleased with this. Who knew it was possible to make a cute card without accessories!
