Tabletop Football - Sketches In Thyme #99

Today I have another sketch from Sketches In Thyme and
I had a lot of fun with this one. 

These photos were very spur of the moment, we were waiting on our
dinner to be delivered and my DD2 and I decided to play
tabletop football with the little paper that was wrapped around the napkins.
I guess you never outgrow some things!
I used Glitz papers, aphlas, and die cut stickers for this layout along with a couple of doilies, some ribbon, bling, and chipboard and my Powder Puff inks from Quick Quotes.
I used my Cricut (Birthday Bash) to cut the banner, using two layers and added it on top of ruffles doilies. I used my Gelatos to color the edges of the doily. The ribbon is actually printed on the other side, but I just wanted the burlap so I flipped it over and used a Prima clear stamp on it. The bling on the banner is from Basic Grey.
I used Teal Metal and Blue Metal Gelatos® combined to color the chipboard and added some silver pearls I got  from the $$ bin at Michaels. 

Here is the great sketch I used
Be sure to join in the fun over at Sketches In Thyme you have
