Birthday card for a West Ham supporter

This is the card that I made for one of my stepsons - he is a West Ham supporter (I don't expect he'll be too happy today as I see that they were beaten by Arsenal ... but I have to smile and cheer a bit, even though I'm not a keen football supporter, but my dad was a great Arsenal supporter).

I found a clipart bubbles background (I'm forever blowing bubbles - their theme song) and played around with it before digitally adding the two sentiment panels, changing the colours to try and get as close as possible to West Ham's - printed out and added the West Ham die cut topper.

This is an A5 card:
