I have been on a Birthday card bonanza lately so here is another card.  This sweet birthday surprise is also created with the How Sweet It Is bundle.  I love how the gumballs in the machine look like they are all over the base of the card.  That is one of the Designer Series Paper sheets in the bundle.  You can also get the stamp set and framelits by themselves in the bundle here.  It can be used for almost any occasion.  A card like this will certainly excite the kids.
