Timeless Talk- Convention Swap

So, as most of you know, I just got back from Salt Lake City for Stampin' Up! 25th Anniversary! WHAT A TIME! Nothing like spending 2 1/2 days with 5,800 stamping fanatics!  This was a really special one for me.  I got to walk the stage 3 TIMES! One for my 10 years! Once for my incentive trip ACHIEVEMENT! and once for Annual Sales! Now, I don't like being in front of a camera, but you have no idea how "nervous" I was when I was on the JUMBO TRON! EEK! Anyway, I had a once in a lifetime opportunity and wouldn't trade it for anything! 
Here is a swap card I made for an Organized Swap.  I used the Timeless Talk stamp set and stamped the telephone with Early Expresso onto Very Vanilla and added an Antique Brad in the center for the rotary dial, and then used the Circles Framelits to cut out the image and then a slightly larger one for the Island Indigo behind it.  I popped up the image with Dimensionals. I stamped the background using the Chevron Background Stamp in Daffodil Delight ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and used my 1" circle punch to punch just in half way for the Cherry Cobbler Chevron ribbon to wrap around.  I stamped the Hello There from the same stamp set in Cherry Cobbler onto Very Vanilla, punched it out with the Duo Ticket Punch and sponged the edges with Early Expresso and used a Dimensional behind it. I punched out a Cherry Cobbler Heart using the Small Heart Punch and placing it behind the sentiment and punched out a Daffodil Delight and Island Indigo Itty Bitty flower and added a Basic Pearl to the center of each one and roughed up the flower edges.  I will have a couple more swaps to share in the coming days, but for now, I need to get my Christmas Stamp a Stack packed for Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
