Engagement card for Andy and Mandy

Today was a full day, I woke up early when my hubby left for work and then went back to sleep. Got woken at 7.30 a.m. by the alarm and terrible leg cramp. I finally drifted off again only to be woken by our youngest son who had taken his rally car on the back of a trailer to a tyre place and left the keys home so couldn't drive it off.  Could I please bring the keys to him?  Luckily it isn't very far from home only two minutes in the car. I did have to get dressed, check my blood sugar, have breakfast and medication, all of which I did in record time but still got another call to ask where was I!!! I went to the shops after I gave him the keys and found some black cord jeans.
I haven't been to the Saturday craft group for 3 weeks due to other committments, so I went but I was late because I had to make this card first as we went to the Engagement Party tonight.
We've only just got home and I am now sitting here yawning while I type my post.
This is what I made for the happy couple....

Front of card

Inside of card
Black cardstock from stash for the basecard
Silver textured cardstock from stash
DP from 6x6 mini pad from Cre8tiv
Main image is from Fizzy Moon ~ Celebrations - Let's Celebrate
Little Heart image is from SU I (heart) Hearts
Sentiment is from SU Perfect Punches
Nestie Circle Dies.
Small pearls from stash
Copic Markers
Decorative Label Punch
SU Basic Black inkpad
SU Real Red inkpad

I stamped the image directly onto the silver textured card and then onto a scrap of the same card. I cut it out and adhered over the top of the first one to give it a bit more dimension. I coloured the bottle, cork, cap, the teddie's nose, glasses and the hearts with Copic Markers. I only wanted the colour to be very minimalistic.
I added a torn piece of the black card. A small piece of the DP with a strip of black card through the middle
The sentiment was also stamped onto the textured card using SU Basic Black ink and cut out with the punch.
The little hearts on  the inside were stamped directly onto the textured card with SU Real Red ink
