Caardvarks Challenge - "Don't quote me but..."

I made this card for the Caardvarks challenge "Don't quote me but...". I love this quote because it pretty much says that it's okay to dream as long as you try to go after those dreams and make them reality. Anyway, here's my card. I've uploaded better quality pictures.

How it was made
Castle: clipart that was printed out on vellum and embossed with clear embossing powder with glitter
Cloud: white paper that was cut in the shape of a card, glued on the blue card base, covered with glue then covered with cotton, daubed with embossing ink and them embossed with glittery, clear embossing powder
DREAM word tags: made in SCAL and cut with Cricut
Quote: Found online, formatted with Microsoft Publisher, printed on vellum, embossed with glittery, clear embossing powder, and adhered to yellowish cardstock.
Inside: used same cream paper with blue flowers as what was used with DREAM word tags, layered on top same yellow cardstock, same technique used as cover to make cloud, but not embossed.
