Once upon a Sketch May Challenge

This months challenge by Once Upon A Sketch  is about Numbers so i decided to make another heritage page about my grandparents wedding. i used the date of the wedding as the title. Here's the link If you use chipboard you can submit your layout to berry71bleu at, so a chance to enter their challenge.
 I used HOTP Roses in Harmony papers and papermania pampered pets because the colours blend well. i used Prima and Bobunny stamps for the background.
 For the flower i used Tim Holtz tattered florals dies and embossed the petals using a balling tool, i then painted around the edges with white acrylic paint and added a chipboard flourish and beading .
 For the corrugated card effect i used a paper crimper and then inked the card with Tim Holtz Vintage photo ink and then mixed some white acrylic paint with a little water and blended them together.
I used something called paper mesh to tuck behind the tear.
