Love Bama Football

This week at Celebrate The Occasion the challenge is to create a project with the colors red, black, and white.  Oh, was that ever easy for me! The first thing that popped into my head was ALABAMA FOOTBALL.  If BAMA fans are not at the game, they are watching it on television.  So I wanted to make a card using a television.  I love this cut on the Nifty Fifties cartridge.

I found the photo of Bear Bryant on the net and thought it would be the perfect "show" for my television.  So I printed it out and used a template to cut it to fit the television screen.  I added a couple of gems for the tv channel and volume knobs.  

I also printed the hounds tooth ribbons from the net.  Since the tornado that ripped through Tuscaloosa on April 27th, the hounds tooth ribbon has become the symbol of the city. The epoxy sentiment stickers are from the Colorbok Flea Market collection.

The paper papers are from DCWV and The Paper Company.  The red and white ribbon is from Michael's.  
And here is the inside of the card with the perfect Bama message.  ROLL TIDE!!! 

Please visit Celebrate The Occasion where you will see all the wonderful creations of the talented design team.  We want you too to share your talent using red, black, and white.
