It's a wedding day!!...

Hello and welcome!

Today this is a scheduled post as I am currently in Edinburgh waiting to go to the castle to see my DOH's brother and fiance get married!  I know, how posh to get married in the chapel at the castle!  I really hope the weather holds up, although I would be very surprised!!

My DOH's brother is a die-hard West Ham Utd football fan and I have been reliably informed by the bride that the team colours are an influence in the wedding decorations so I though it only fitting to make a card to reflect this...of course!!  The colours though stumped me a bit...Claret and Blue.  What do you do with claret and blue!!?  Not being a big football fan myself, I don't know much about West Ham Utd so I thought I'd Google it and see what popped up.  The fan song they're most known for singing at their games is 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' and that sparked a little idea in my mind.  I hope you understand what I mean when you see the card!

Do you see??!  I die cut the circles from the white layer and popped it up over some embossed circles in claret and blue.  The pearls are like little tiny bubbles!

I'll be honest...I'm not sold on this card entirely, but it has grown on me a tad, I think?!  Let me know what you think...I may have looked at it and stressed over it for too long now!  ;)

Well, despite the card, I'm sure we're having a fantastic day!!  I hope you all are too ;)

Thank you for stopping by ;)
