MIM: Decreasing Aperature with PTI

Howdy and welcome friends! Thank you so much for stopping by! I am so excited to have gotten to play with my new PTI goodies that just arrived this past weekend from my Stamp-a-faire order. I don't get much time to play with stamps these days, seeing as how I have a 1 month old and a 22 month old to occupy my play time, which makes blogging my cards next to impossible. The fact that this card was made AND blogged is practically a miracle! How do you other moms do it? I hope this counts for the MIM Decreasing Aperature challenge. My layers aren't decreasing in size as they go, but they do layer backwards so that so that the last layer is the one inside the window (which is layered behind the Kraft layer with dimensionals). All the other layers are die cut using the Alphablocks die. The depth is very realistic...for a card. ;) I wish it's dimension would show up better in the photos. {SIGH} Oh well. Hope you like it! It was inspired by the simpler and oh-so-clever card by the amazing Jessica Witty shown here. Thanks for looking! If you feel up to leaving a comment, let me know what time a day you craft and (if kids are in the picture) how you manage mommying and crafting/bloggin. Hope to see you again soon! Have a blessed day!
