That was {so} sweet of you

 I made this card back when I first got this adorable bubblegum machine die cut and coordinating stamps. I was a little obsessed so I didn't want to bombard you with lots of bubblegum cards. I do have another one to share, but I'll wait until I post everything I did for Teacher Appreciation of these days! LOL! I made this card for a friend after she lent us her garden tiller. I gave her the card and a box of chewy Sweetarts and it looked so cute together.

 I totally love the addition of the glittery gold bow at the top of the bubblegum machine. I just couldn't resist; even though she doesn't love bows. She did forgive me, because after all, I gave her candy! The gumballs were all diecut and then I added a layer of glossy accents to give them the shine of a bubblegum ball. I loved how they turned out. I also added some crystal clear sequins as well for a little more sparkle.The sentiment was also heat embossed using gold embossing powder.

I grabbed a couple of bubblegum machine birthday gift sacks at the dollar store the other day. I can't wait to make some cards to go with those as well. Thanks for fluttering by!

Really love this! So much is unexpected in terms of patterns/texture for a gumball machine, but it's so fun and elegant and a little masculine too!
