MIM #26-Decreasing Apertures

Happy Monday to everyone!
Whew!  I made this card for a birthday that is TODAY!  I don't have to put this in the mail.  So, I went ahead and made a square card.  I also took this opportunity to participate in this week's Make It Monday #26 Challenge.  :)
I finished with perfect timing...I just pulled the cake from the oven.  It is cooling as I type.

Honestly, for this card I just grabbed my stash of scraps and started die-cutting.  I didn't really pay attention to color or pattern.  Can you tell?  I also just grabbed whatever ink colors that were nearby.  I sort of tried to match.  But, I wasn't being particular. 
This technique is so much fun.  I so enjoy learning new (to me) things.  :)
Enjoy your day!
