Monday Fun Day - No embellishments!

ACK! I know, right? Who was the crazy that picked this theme for the Farm Fresh Challenge?
Oh yes, it was I. :)

{Please scroll down for another fun challenge over at TPE this week - thank you!}

So here are the rules - no hardware stuff, including but not limited to brads, eyelets, buttons, baubles, spirals clips, etc. NOR can you use ribbon, fiber, twine, etc.
However, you can use punches and die cuts as long as your accents are made with paper!
See? I'm not that mean...
Here is my card for Farm Fresh Challenge's No Embellishments theme:

It's adorable Oliver! Since this was such a boy-ish image, I decided to use my double hole punch and circle nestie to make paper buttons as accents. I also used a MS train border punch to take the place of where the ribbon would normally go, then added the 'handsome' rub on and faux white pen stitching. Super easy to do! I did have a sweet dt member ask me how I did Oliver's hat - it was quite simple with copics and the blender pen, just color in the area, then do stripes with the blender pen to remove the ink. Alternate directions so that it looks more like a pattern and voila - a plaid newsboy cap! :)
So now it's your turn to show me your non-embellished card. Just click here to see the beautiful work that the designers did on the Farm Fresh Challenge blog, this is also where you will link up your work.
Thank you again for coming by - hugs and happy day to you all!

Perfect challenge, Joni! I actually was finishing up a card last night, and couldn't quite figure out what to embellish with. Now I can just leave it! ;)
