I don't think anybody will design it for you.

You will have to show your work. People will help when you get stuck.

If this is part of a course you must have some idea of what you need to do.

so far i have a cd4511 thumbwheel switch and a 7 segment as decoder. im missing a 555-timer and i have no idea if it fits the circuit or how im suppose to connect it

You need to revisit your drawing after looking at the CD4511 datasheet.

It will be painfully obvious why you need the 555 timer.
