So long to some of my favorites...

Today's card is inspired by this week's Paper Players Clean and Simple Challenge #142 - A one-layer card.    Now that's a hard one for me because I like to add a little dimension to my cards.  When trying to figure out what to use I decided why not use a bunch of things that are retiring since I won't be using them much longer.  Well, maybe I will for my personal stuff, but not for my stamp a stacks or card classes. :(  My favorite thing that is going is the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint that I spritz on my cards.  I don't know what I'm going to do without it!  I use it on a LOT of my cards because it adds so much to them.  I think I'll keep using it as long as I have some on hand! :)   I also picked one of my two favorite sets that is retiring and colored it in with retiring colors (except So Saffron).  It's kind of hard to see in my picture, but I scored a rectangle and only colored on the inside of it, then spritzed only the outside of the card.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
