It's National Gumdrop Day...who knew?

Emily from Mollie's Motif, that's who. She is our hostess at BBTB2 this week. She has asked us to use candy on our projects in honor of this special day!

I used images from Cake Basics, Sweet Shop and Creative Holiday Cards for the card base. I added a couple of extra layers to the background by duplicating the pink layer and making one smaller and one larger. I have notice that my cards have been looking a little sparse and thought that might help. The paper is all Recollections solid color card stock from Michael's. I had to break out the clear Wink of Stella again to add a little sparkle. 

Since today is a holiday, take a few minutes to come join us with a project. We love to see your work!


  1. What a sweet card Lynn! I love the color combo you used and who can resist a candy machine?!! Be it gum balls or other candy, the machines are half the fun of getting the candy. Your embossing looks great, the perfect embossing folder for this image. Love the sparkle from the Wink of Stella pen, who can resist sparkle?!! Hugs, Brenda

  2. Pink and purple together always makes me happy! Love how the embossing echoes the shape of the gumdrops. Very cute!

  3. I love the embossing on your card, I goes so well with your gumball machine! This is definitely a sweet card and a fun one, too.

  4. love your take on the gumball machine - love the colors and the background choices - the colors would suit my granddaughter perfectly -- maureen
