Birthday Pick-up

This is the card I made for my son's 18th birthday. He is really loves working one cars and trucks, so this is right up his alley. I also made it for the limited supply challenge(LSC188) on SCS today, to use NO EMBELLISHMENTS, not an easy thing to do. The other challenge I made this for is the one on Punky Doodle Papers it was to make a birthday card, at least this part was easy.

So onto the card, I sponged the background with so saffron, blue bayou, creamy caramel and just a touch of chocolate chip to make the ground and the sky. Next I stamped and heat embossed the tress from Lovely as a Tree. The truck it is an old stamp I have had for years. I stamped it on white cards stock and then colored with koh-i-noor pencils and blended with OMS. After that I cut out the truck and windows. Lastly I inked the whole truck with versamark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. It is attached to the card front with pop dots. It doesn't show as well in the picture, but in person it really looks like the truck is driving off the card.
Thanks for looking.
