This stamp set, "Countryside," was one of the first that I added to my "must have" list when I saw Stampin' Up!'s current catalog.  I don't know what it is about this set, but it just calls to me.  To create my MISM card, I embossed the front of the Crumb Cake card with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  After stamping the image, I cut it into four squares, adhered them to Very Vanilla card stock, and then adhered that layer to Early Espresso.  On a separate piece of card stock, I stamped the apple, cut it out, and then topped it with Crystal Effects.  It has been adhered to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.  The sentiment is from "Teeny Tiny Wishes" and shaped with the Word Window punch. Except for the drying time needed for the Crystal Effects, this card took 15 or 20 minutes to make.  I almost forgot to mention . . . I used an alcohol marker to color the three pearls on the bottom left of the stamped layer.

Very very nice. The addition of the red apple is a brilliant idea.
