Tried Gauze today! Not sure what I think.........

Hello to all of my crafty and talented friends!
Things have been really crazy around my house,
so it was so good to shut myself in my craft room 
and play this morning!
I decided that today I would try to use some gauze.
I have no idea who the first person was 
who decided to craft with gauze,
but I've seen some really lovely cards with gauze on them.
So.........Here is my first effort.
LOL!  And just maybe my last!
The adorable image is
I decided to make a birthday card, because
we can never have enough of those!

Here are a couple of different shots.

I guess that maybe the guaze does give a nice soft look to the overall card.

colored with copics and paper pieced with SU dp.
The cardstock is Stampin Up
The background design paper is DCWV Glitter Mat Stack
The heart die is Cheery Lynn
The scallop die is MFT
The corner embellishement and flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts
The  lace, cupcake and pearls are all from my stash
the pretty ruffled ribbon is SU
