You Rock! - CAS-ual Fridays Challenge

Hi!  I've got a card for the current challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays.  The challenge this week is to use paper piecing.
I love the detail work of doing paper piecing, so this challenge pulled me in right away.  This is what I came up with.

I had fun with this card.  Even though I kept messing up the crystal effects on the TV screen.  This one is my second attempt...but it's still not as smooth as I had hoped.  I applied the crystal effects to a piece of striped patterned paper.  I stamped the TV on another patterned paper, cut it out (and cut out the inside of the screen with a craft knife).  I placed this onto the first piece before the glaze dried, so that it would adhere...and so that the shiny glaze would be pushed up a little from the edges of the frame.  Hopefully, this gives the illusion of a slightly rounded or domed screen, like one of those old televisions.
This card will be going into my Etsy shop.

Thanks so much for stopping in to take a look!
