Make It Monday #26: Decreasing Apertures

Now that I am such a faithful follower of Papertrey Ink, I decided to participate in my first Make It Monday challenge. Oh, Lord, did I pick a tough one - Decreasing Apertures! I watched the video (twice!)and then took the plunge. The colors I used are Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss, and Ocean Tides, Spellbinders Labels 4 dies, PTI Mat Stack 2 die, and Spellbinders Circle dies, and the stamp set, Round and Round, which is last year's PTI anniversary set. I decided to skip the glitter window because with my luck, I would ruin the whole card with that last step! This is certainly not the best card I've ever made, but I'm glad I tried the technique. Hope you'll try, too!
