Rat Pack - Swing Card

I'm up a little late this evening.  Way too much coffee today.  I probably should hit my pillow soon but I wanted to share a card I made for my friend's husband.  She wanted something a little "Mad Men" and a little "Rat Pack."  Her husband loves scotch so I went with a hand-drawn scotch filled glass. I decided to go with a swing card.  This is the first time I made a swing card.  I think it turned out well...and goes with the entire theme of the card. 

Wish I new who made this paper.  I have so many scraps of paper and it is hard to keep track of where I got it from.

I punched out some black circles and strong them with embroidery thread. The little circles move as well.
