A pretty gum ball machine.............

If its your birthday soon don't peak!

Don't you just love Gumball machines...........I have an antique one sitting on my kitchen bench full of
M & M's , for a while now I have been tempted to paint  it so it would look more Shabby chic. I suppose making this card has given me and idea how pretty it could the moment its red!

The challenge this week at Fantabulous Cricut is to create a shape card............this is my entry. I used "Wrap it Up".

The little heart turn thingy is an  earing, I just cut the back post off. Glossy accents, glitter and heart buttons were added to the gum balls.

So what do you think............should I paint my red one white? How pretty would it look with pink and white m & m's.  I could co-ordinate colours depending on the time of the year. LOL

 Thankyou 4 stopping by
