Paper Players Clean & Simple 56

I just now got this Countryside SU! stamp set and have been waiting to use it.  With this weeks http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/ sketch, I new it was what I had to use.  My son chose the color of blue for the pickup.  He's only 11 and loves looking at all the things I creat, he's so funny, cause he always says to me, "you need to make me one of those" everytime I show him something!!  I stamped the little apple several times and water colored them red and scattered them around the card.  I even pop dotted the one that is in the corner of the truck.  The truck has also been watercolored using my SU! pencils.  It makes such a nice soft touch.

SU! items used:  soft suede, cherry cobbler, not quite navy and very vanilla.  I used the crumb cake seam binding ribbon (love this stuff-it makes such a wonderful bow) and the designer label punch for the sentiment and the scalloped border/corner punch for the blue mat.

Thanks, you can't see it to well, but the red paper is embossed like a piece of wood.
