Turning Four is FUN

I have a cousin, Amelia, who will be turning 4 this weekend.  I wanted to make her a special card to help her celebrate her big day.  She looks up to me, and I adore her.  So, I'm confident she will like this card because she always asks me to buy her a gumball when we go to a store that has one.  It's just something I always do for her.  This little vintage gumball machine is from Crate Paper.  I stamped the birthday sentiment in Black Ink, added some ribbon and baker's twine, a wooden Tim Holtz button for the number 4, a little circus ticket, and pattern papers from Crate Paper.
I'm entering these FUN challenges where my card fits their themes:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge #192 - Anything Goes/Family Friendly

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes - I wanted to enter this challenge since I used this adorable vintage gumball machine and an old-fashioned shabby/vintage feel to this card.

Stamp & Create Challenge Blog - July Challenge/Patterns - I enjoy using lots of great pattern papers and combining different backgrounds (polka dots, words, stripes, etc.) and also loved the patterns on all these fun elements.

CropStop Challenge Blog - Linky Party #6 - I used baker's twine and ink as found in the CropStop store.

I hope that you are enjoying a good week whether you're at work, watching your kids, retired, or anywhere in between; enjoy each day God has given you.  And always have fun making your cards.  I know I sure do!

Until next time,
