Gumballs Anyone?

Click on any image to enlarge

I just had to do another gatefold card for this card. These are more images that I reduced from a coloring book. After coloring the boy and girl with my prismacolor pencils I remembered seeing a gumball machine on its own, so I got the idea to use it on the front of the card. I didn't want just a plain back showing on the inside, so I colored two, matted them both, and pop-dotted the top one so the right side of the front would slide inbetween it when closed.

The papers are more from a beautiful stack I purchased for $7.95 by K&Company with 360 pages. (What a deal!) I used the new MS pansy punch. The sentiment is done with Sweethearts and PS. I wanted more of a 3-D effect, so I punched some foamies with my "1/4" hole punch and drew a highlight mark on them for more gumballs. Of course, by now I've run out of room to put my message to my friends, so I did a hidden pocket under the picture and used a gumball as the pull.

I'm entering this card at Polka Doodles Challenge and at
Saturday Challenge
