Wedding card

I've had problems with my back this week and problems with this card! Sorry my photo makes the sentiment look dark as it doesn't in reality. I'll take you through it, I began with an embossed background on my card. Next I used my Cameo to cut a lattice which is a free file by Debbie, I  used a lovely pearl card then threaded this with white satin ribbon and added a few pearls. Using my Cameo again I cut the wedding bells file from Silhouette, I finished this with a little glamour dust. So far all went well until the sentiment. This is a 3 layer file which I wanted to cut in two colours, pearl and silver. I wanted silver as the top layer has strands as thin as cotton thread which wouldn't look good unless on something delicate. Oh my ladies you won't believe how difficult this was and I have to give hugs hugs and thanks to my dear friend Adele who is so talented and very happy to give her valuable advice. Only by learning how the various aspects of text work in Studio will I then be able to make my own text with layers. That top layer was such a pain, I've lost count how many times those tiny strands broke off, sometimes in the cutting, sometimes just putting them down on the top of the sentiment. Now I will show you the inside, oh I know I don't usually as I mostly write my own verse to suit the receiver. This time no verse as you will see as I know the lovely couple will love this.
This is my first pop-up on my Cameo, I bought the file from Cocopopart, they have some amazing files for sale. I've put a pearlised orange paper behind the pop-up to light it up then to the left I've added a Silhouette cut file which is a heart flourish. I've only stuck down the top part so the actually hearts could fly free. What do you think my crafty friends?
