Keeping white space

Why does it seem so hard to create a card and still keep lots of white space?
 The challenge at CAS-ology this week is Precious, meaning that white space is precious.  I of course had to give it a try.  
 I started out by mixing a little bit of orange and purple Distress Inks onto a piece of watercolor paper. I spritzed these inks with water and created the little burst of color that I wanted.  I stamped this great sentiment on the ink once it was dry.  Then stamped the flower with white ink and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I added color with Distress Stain ink.  The flower and sentiment are stamps by Wplus9 Designs and the flower has a matching die.  I added Glossy Accents to the middle of the flower and then added some white pearls with Liquid Pearls.  
Here is the CAS-ology Precious challenge.
