Sharing popcorn ... for life

A month to go and already everyone is thinking Valentine's Day. I was at the mall today and there were hearts and cupids and mushy cards everywhere. But, do not be misled by the hearts on today's card. This is not a Valentine's Day card! In fact, my husband's nephew announced his engagement and this card is actually in recognition of that wonderful event.

The image is a favourite of mine from Karen's Doodles; I bought it ages ago and have used it for other engagement cards. I purchased the boy & girl separately and merged them in Photoshop for this card. The colouring is done with Copics and the papers are from a brand-new paper pack I picked up this past week from Basic Grey. I'm not entering it into their card challenge since I'm not using a Christmas theme, but I used sketch from Christmas Card Challenges.
