Today I get to share one of my favourite products from the new 2015 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue with you, this beautiful 12x12 paper pack called Timeless Elegance. Oh my goodness, how beautiful is it? Reminds me of an old English cottage somewhere sunny and peaceful. I just wanted to use it on a card straight out of the pack as there were so many beautiful designs on the pages. I think I managed to use 4 different sheets here. Today's card is for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team weekly sketch, SB108. Don't forget you can play along with the sketch now too and link your image (more details at the end of the post).
The coordinating colours given for this 12x12 double sided paper pack (there's 12 sheets, 2 each of 6 designs) are Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Very Vanilla. I found Tip Top Taupe is a great coordinating colour and I have used Blushing Bride as my pink. I have stamped directly onto one pattern of the paper, used another pattern for the scallop mat, another under the lace and twine, and that final beautiful rose pattern for the main layer. I have seen some lovely cards where the roses have been coloured with sponge daubers and ink, but I thought I'd start with them 'a la natural today'.
You might also spy one of the new adhesive metal rimmed pearls (these are flat back) in the centre of my flower. My greeting is from a great new thankyou set called One Big Meaning. You can view all the products I have used today in the links below.
Here's the sketch Sandi gave us to work with this week. I just flipped the circle over to the left hand side.
Now it's time to fly around the world and see what the other Stamping and Blogging Design Team girls have done with today's sketch.

Now it's YOUR turn to play along.
You can now enter the weekly challenges along and link your creation for us all to admire. We will be picking a weekly winner and would love to see what you create with this sketch. To play along, you just need to post your creation on the Sketch and Stamp page, which is the name for the new Stamping and Blogging weekly challenges.
I hope you enjoyed today's card. See you again soon,
