make it monday

This week's make it monday challenge is to make a card with "decreasing apertures" - fancy talk for a window card :)

I made mine by layering some pretty authentique paper on kraft and rustic cream with the half and half and mat stack 5 dies

I wasn't sure where i was going to go with this card until i tried to go to sleep on Monday night; I got the idea and had to hop out of bed and grab my stamps and layer my die cuts before my brain would shut off for sleep :)

supplies: everything's from papertrey ink unless otherwise noted
cardstock: kraft, rustic cream, and fine linen
