News Flash!

Card was inspired by
1. color choice of red, blue, grey and cream in this week's Paper Smooches July 15-21 Cool Shades Challenge - Celebration

2. card sketch from CAS(E) this sketch #36

Love the choice of colors but I didn't want the card to end up looking too patriotic with the reds and blues - so I decided to choose a non-patriotic subject - the television!

* after stamping the television (stamp is from the Paper Smooches - Boob Tubes stamp set), I cut out the centre screen portion and backed the same with a zigzag-pattern paper
* the zigzag theme was repeated in the centre circle - which was die-cut both in red and in the grey polka-dotted paper using QuicKutz Nesting Pinking Circles die
* the banner (from the Paper Smooches -Streamers stamp set) was matted on dark blue paper
* banner and tv set were fixed on the card using mounting tape for extra dimension

PS Note: hurrah ... this card was chosen for Featured Player mention in the Paper Smooches Cool Shades Challenge!
