Make It Monday #50 Shaker Card

I haven't made a shaker card or embellishment in so long...this really brought back some fun memories for me.  Several years ago when I was scarpbooking and this was the new trend, my friends and I would try and come up with some pretty wild ideas for shaker boxes and what a mess did they make! Glitter, sparkles and confetti everywhere but it was fun...so night before last I could not sleep so I was up at 3:30am and working on my card and this is what I ended up making. So instead of using glitter or confetti I oped for buttons and I am very happy with the way it turned out.  Thanks for taking a peek!
