Go Yankees!

 My brother-in-law is a BIG Yankee fan.  When I saw this banner by Lizzie Jones I knew I had to make one for him. The Yankee colors are a very dark navy blue and white. Gray is also listed as a color.


 Here are some up close shots of each panel. The baseball is embossed with the Linen IP to give some texture which didn;t show up in the photo.


 I drew the pin stripes. After all that is a big part of the Yankee uniform. I searced all over for pin striped paper and couldn't find any.
 The bats were cut from wood printed paper and the grips were wrapped with silk ribbon. I used my Wishblade to cut the letters,


I am submitting this to  Simon Says Stamps Challenge:Masculine/Father's Day. Baseball is definitely masculine. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
