Shaker Birthday Card - Goody Goody Gumballs!

Hello Delightful friends and family
Had a fun time visiting the grandkids school and having lunch with them today.  They were tickled I was there and only Jakob knew I was coming so I surprised Riley and Addy.  I love seeing their faces light up!

Here is a card I did for my nephew who celebrated his birthday on Monday.  Happy birthday to Will!

 Looks like the little beads are popping in the air!  They aren't stuck there, they are tiny beads so I thought I'd take the photo with them more visible. I've colored the image with Copic Markers and this fun stamp and die set is from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment bubble is a die from Spellbinders.  The background embossing folder is called Diamond Plate from Provocraft and probably discontinued. The designer paper is from Echo Park. The card stock was cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling die.  I kept the design simple since this was for a teen boy and I thought I was kind of pushing it with a gumball machine on his card.

I will be sharing this card at

Here is a picture of my not so little ones!

Can't forget Princess Tucker who was just finishing her day at Preschool.

Thanks for visiting!
