Pedaling Past with Retro Background

I designed the above card (top), and my inspiration was this vintage poster.  I like the colors on the poster better, but I didn't have the exact match in my paper stash.
I used the Stampin Up Pedaling Past stamp set.  I stamped on vanilla cardstock, using black ink.  I framed in black paper.  I used the corner punch on 2 of the corners.  I colored the bike with the Tangerine Tango and Black Marker.
For the background paper I used the 1" Circle Punch on Tangerine Tango and Baja Breeze Paper.  I cut each circle in half.  I scored the ivory card so there would be 15 squares.  I placed each circle in a square to resemble the vintage tile.  I used dimensionals to adhere the bike image in the center of the card.
I hope you enjoy my vintage creation.  If so, please leave me a comment!
