Decreasing Apertures!!!

When I heard about this challenge from Papertrey Ink, I thought it would be really easy but little did I know that it was quite a challenging task. So, I began to tackle the decreasing apertures by using the Nestabilities labels 4. It took me a while to figure out the right way to do it since it was my first attempt.

My favorite technique is dry embossing. Ever since I used my Cuttlebug, I find myself using it again & again. I'm so addicted!

This is the end result.
