Happy Birthday!

Do you ever buy something because, someone else made it look SO COOL? ( ha, this happens to me more often than you would think) (yes, I have a mini store upstairs over my garage but, I still fall for that one... mostly tools but, the last year or two coloring mediums have been fair game in the follow me home parade) This has a couple of those things on them, I seen this gumball machine die from sizzix and loved a sample photo online. One of the very first "decore" items my hubs and I ever bought is a red metal gumball machine, and we still have it upstairs in the hobby room. The flap is a separate piece as well as where the glass dome would be and they are a little 3d in real life. All the pieces were run through the embossing folder that comes with this die and then I water colored the "gum balls". (they didn't look like they did in my head before I tried this) The would be metal parts I rubbed some inka gold apricot and old gold over the bumps. There is also some bo bunny glitter paste on this.I tied some offray ribbon and May Arts iridescent cord around this to give it a festive party look and stamped the Two Paper Diva's sentiment from the banners 1 set on a scrap of the real red paper and die cut that with an avery elle die. It is a free floating sentiment on here. The dotted paper is from the Prima "blush" pad and the background print is from the Basic Grey "Hello luscious" pad. The crochet lace is vintage. This card finishes out at 6" square. Thanks for stopping by :)

Ha! Stacy, yes I do that often but I am working on really trying to buy what speaks to my soul and I try to think, "how many times will I use this"? But I still do it. You made this gumball machine shine!!! It caught my eye right off with the wonderful gumballs so I had to come visit for a closer look! Gorgeous card!
