Papillon Potpourri Thank You Card

Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  I Am Attracted To Space
The dictionary defines space as "a continuous area or expanse that is free, available, or unoccupied."  Lately I've been craving it!  Inside, outside, even in my card design - I am feeling a need for space.  We actually went to look at a house in the mountains the other day and what attracted me most was the view of the wide open expanse - the space - uncluttered, free.  Yes, I am continuing my journey with my cluttered living space and the need for space - not in terms of more room for my stuff - but in terms of that expanse - is what is driving me.  Right now, I am attracted to space!
For today's card I decided to leave lots of white space and play with some of the colors that will be retiring for Stampin' Up!s color refresh.  I began with a Whisper White card base and stamped the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri using River Rock ink.  The greeting from From My Heart was stamped using Bravo Burgundy.  Both River Rock and Bravo Burgundy are colors that are being discontinued with the color refresh.  Beginning on April 4, 2013, all retiring/discontinued color products (i.e. ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) are available only while supplies last.  Order your retiring colors NOW

Pretty card. Love your use of space. Thanks to you, Michelle, I've started decluttering my house, as well. Not sure I'll end up with lots of open space, but I hope to at least find room to move around more easily. ;-) --Doris
