Sports theme banner

A dear friend of mine has the most precious baby. He is such a sweet chunk of love. I offered to make a banner for his room. She is going with vintage sports as the decor. Now this is my first 'boy' banner. I looked at it for the longest time wondering what to do or add other than balls. I wasn't thrilled. Almost everything I make that needs that 'something', usually involves something sparkly. And sparkles wasn't gonna cut it this time. Naturally, it was something that's right there on my desk that I use plenty of....INK. All I did was ink the edges to give it more dimension and a bit of an aged look. It made a big difference and I was satisfied, not wanting to overdo it.
I used MTC for the collegiate letters and Sports Mania cart for the balls.

'Anything goes' was the theme for August. I didn't get to go to the swap, so I played catch up. These were super easy. I got the stamps from Michael's, just inked heavy on the left and lighter everywhere else in silver and gold, added some sparkle in blue (which you can't see) and done. I got twelve done in less than an hour.
 September's theme was 'pets'. I think I'm gonna skip that one.
