It's that wonderful time of the week....a new Thursday Challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! What wonderful colors we got to play with this week. Come have some fun and join us with these colors:

My card:

When I started browsing the Stampin' Up! Catalog back in June, one of the first stamp sets that I was drawn to was the Timeless Talk stamp set. I totally adore the bicycle image. You don't need to stamp much more to keep this card fabulous.

I punched 3 pennants from my Pennant Punch and glued Linen Thread to the back of each pennant to create a banner. I added the stars from the Merry Minis Punch Pack and added Rhinestone Jewels to the centers:

Both sentiments were cut with the Ticket Punch and layered with an Antique Brad:

  1. This is such a great card in every way! Love that it is pretty simple! And then I love all the wonderful details that you have added!

  2. Delightful! These colors lend themselves to the vintage style...I like the old bike combined with the tickets and pennants. Lots of fun!

    1. The bike image was one of the first ones that drew me in when the new catalog came out. Thanks Lisa!

  3. I agree. That bicycle is an awesome image! Love how you grouped it with tickets and a banner. Reminds me of an old time circus.

  4. So much fun using this set with the colors...love the circle and pennants! That set was one of my first purchases, too...but I liked the antique phone! Great job with the color challenge!

  5. Such a cute card! Love the banner!

  6. I don't use this set nearly as often as I should - thanks for the inspiration!
