Fresh Apples ~ Happy Birthday

I love this little pick-up.  I saw a card that Dawn did on her blog  Dawn's Stamping Thoughts  and used that as my idea for making this one.  Her's is done with a little darker colors and different ribbon, but basically they're the same.  I used Countryside for the pick-up truck, stamped with Staz-On Black Ink and colored with colored pencils using the blender pen.  The card base is Soft Suede and then I ran the next layer of Crumb Cake through the Finial Press Embossing Folder.  I layered the little truck on another piece of Soft Suede, punched the corners with the Ticket Corner Punch and sponged with Soft Suede Ink.  The Happy Birthday is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set stamped in Soft Suede on Water Color Paper.  The Brads are from Glimmer Basics Set.  I used some Victorian Ribbon and the newspaper looking layer is from Newsprint DSP.  I punched the Happy Birthday with the Word Window Punch, sponged it with Soft Suede and layered onto Soft Suede Paper punched from the Modern Label Punch.
