What's Shakin' ?

That's the sentiment on my card today :o)  What a fun stamp set to play with!  I borrowed this cute set from my friend Linda S.  Thanks Linda!

There's a great new challenge blog out there...have you checked it out yet?  I didn't get a chance to play along in their first challenge, so I sure didn't want to miss out on #2!  You'll want to see the great inspiration provided by their DT. 
CAS-ual Fridays CFC #2 - buttons & twine
 My card...

Just click on a photo to see a larger version.

This was such a fun card to create. I used one continuous length of bakers twine, wrapping it around the panel and sliding the buttons to where I wanted them to be.  I used some Glossy Accents on the salt and pepper shakers, to get a "glass-like" look.  I colored the tops of the shakers with a going gray SU marker.
Thanks for stopping in to take a look at my card.  I hope you'll leave a comment!
