I thought the "Friend" from Friend & Friendship Die-namics would make a great shaker element and I was right! To begin, I heat embossed Best Friend Background on Eiffel Tower card stock with white detail embossing powder and cut the Friend out.

I created my shaker element with clear card stock, foam tape, and clear and gray seed beads, closed it up with Butterscotch card stock, and popped it up on a Sweet Tooth card stock base after tying around some baker's twine.

The sentiment, from Friendship Stamp Set, was stamped with Gravel Gray on Sweet Tooth card stock cut with What Friendship Means Die-namics. The border is from the same set and stamped with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink.

Once everything was assembled, I finished off with some enamel dots.

And that's it from me today! Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
