* In addition to the Needed Parameters, you must include at least ONE Styling parameter (font/color/backcolor/backpatter/style) to get a valid response.
* Backcolor & Backpattern are exclusive between them. If both are included (and both correct) backpattern will be used.
* Style and (font/color/backcolor/backpattern) are not exclusive. When a font (e.g) and a style go together in a gzaas creation, the style will explode and the gzaas will be generated using the font and the remaining features of the style (and it will not be associated with the style itself).

// Authorization info
$apikey    = 'YOUR_API_KEY';

$message  = 'hello megan!!!';
$font = 'chewy';

curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_POST, true);
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $request_data);
curl_setopt($c, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
