Hello there boys and girls!
Today is a very special day as my DOH's son marries his girlfriend and the mother of his gorgeous baby girl!!!
My lucky DOH is in Australia as you are reading this to celebrate along with them...I unfortunately could not make it as it's a very expensive trip and it was far more important that he was there than I was! I do feel a bit bad for him though as he is only able to spend a week over there and so the jet lag is going to hit him full force like a freight train when he returns back home to me :( It has been five years since he saw his son so I know he's going to love every minute of it!
Obviously, an occasion such as this calls for a card...duh!!! The invite that we received was in the very stylish colours of black and pearlised white, so that was my jumping off point. This is how it turned out...
...and a little close up so you can see the pearls :)
It doesn't show very well in the photograph, but the white mat is a beautifully shimmery pearlised white card which makes the whole thing look a bit more elegant than a flat white...I think?!
I really hope that everyone is having a wonderful day and that my DOH is proud as punch and not melting in the heat! It's 45C + where they are at the moment...slightly different from the single, and in some places minus, temperatures that we have here in the UK just now!! He's going to get a shock when he comes home! I also hope that he's having a fantastic time meeting his Granddaughter for the first time...she's 18 months old now and I just know she's going to absolutely adore her silly Grandad! It's a super special trip and I know all concerned will appreciate it even if it is only a fleeting visit ;)
Thanks for stopping by guys ;)
