The release of a new catalog is always bittersweet.  While I'm happy to see new stamp sets, new ink colors, and beautiful new paper, I'm sad to see some of my favorites retire.  Today I was looking through my retired stamp sets and pulled out Natural Beauty.  It's extra special to me because it was the very first stamp set I ever owned!  It seems like yesterday I was introduced to Stampin' Up, but in actuality, it was 2004!  This card also features a retired dsp and the soon to be retired, Really Rust cardstock and ink.
