Gumball Machine Shaker Card

Something new for me...a shaker card!  Perfect timing as this is a birthday card for a four year old and there is a special "Shake It" Challenge over at SSS!.  I started by using my new Gumball Machine SVG file
I had packaging from a round die cut set I'd been saving for just the right project, so I cut out the smallest "cup" and sized my project around it.  This created the "glass" portion of the gumball machine.  I filled it with colored beads to look like the gumballs and then added it all to a card base I made using a manual diecut.  A perfect marriage of manual and electronic!  lol
Shading and highlighting were done with Distress Stain, Distress Ink and Distress Markers  The banner is a Spellbinders die cut and I hand lettered the sentiment.
