Big White Space

I really need to create, big huge stress here.  My parents were both in the hospital at the same time!  I think my brother finally figured out how much I need him to help.  Both parents are not well but hanging in there, they are only 70 & 71 years old.  Very young to have significant illnesses.

Anyway I really needed to stay home today and make cards.

I colored her in copies quite some time ago so this card went together pretty quick.

I used swirls over the gauze and then a ribbon, flower, ribbon and flower for embellishment.  

I used Spellbinders Lacey Ovals and then embossed it in swiss dots.  I mounted it over the gauze and cut Tilda into a oval to place on top of the lacey oval.

I would like to enter the following challenge

Thank you for stopping by and I needed to let out some steam so thanks for tolerating it.
