Wedding Card for Stampin for the Weekend And Happy Wedding Anniversary To My Parents!

Hello everyone! I’m back again to show you a card I made for Stampin for the Weekend and the Challenge is.............
Since Prince William is getting married to Kate on Friday the 29th of April we are having a wedding challenge! My Parents’ 20th Wedding Anniversary was on the 30th of March so I made them this card:

I bought the paper long ago and I think it looked so pretty for this card!

I used an old Sugar Nellie Stamp. It looks like my mom and dad!

I made a little bunch of flowers to give it a more “Wedding” type look.
And I made a bow out of green satin ribbon and stuck it at the bottom of the flowers.

Here I wrote in Afrikaans “Gelukkige 20ste Huweliks Herdenking” which means Happy 20th Wedding Anniversary.

Here I put three little flowers and four white pins.

My mother took this picture of her Willow Tree figure “Together” with the card! Pretty isn’t it?
Please go to Stampin for the Weekend and see if you can take part in our challenge!
With this card I would also like to enter the following challenges:
AiFactory -  Flowes in bloom.
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Anything goes.
C.R.A.F.T. -  Flowers.
Amber's Crafts and Stuff - ribbons and bows
Fab 'n' Funky -  Here comes the Bride
Cupcake Craft - Lots of Layers
Now I would like to show you what a beautiful wedding my parents had 20 years ago!

My beautiful mother!!

My father and mother.

I just love this picture!!

In the wedding car.

And now 20 years later and 8 (+ 4 in heaven) children later!
Don’t my parents still look just as great as 20 years ago?!

My dad bought my mother this beautiful bunch of 20 red roses!
I hope you liked looking at the pictures.
Have a blessed day everyone
