Longing Tilda

I just don't seem to have time to stamp lately and I am missing it. Last week I had to take my dd to her college orientation - that took over 6 hours out of my time. She is in love with the school and can't wait to go.  Hey and she choose my alma mater so I get to go back and reminiscence. lol This week I had to have jury duty. Fortunately I wasn't picked to be on a jury because that would have taken more time away from my stamping but I have done my civic duty for a while. Yeah!
Here is a card that I have been working on.
I think I started on Memorial Day so that is why the red's and blues are here even though it isn't a patriotic card. Longing Tilda is looking out her castle window. The castle was stamped on a grey/blue sparkly paper and colored with copics. As I started this card days ago I didn't keep track of the colors I used. The window was cut out and a light blue bazzill paper was put behind and Tilda added to the front. As I sit here looking at the card I am wondering if I should have red sparkles on the white paper lace instead of the crystal stickles. What do you think? The words are from an old angel company stamp set. The butterflies are from springtime, a new angel company stamp set. The dew drops are from Robin's Nest.  The dp is from bo bunny. 
Please let me know what you think - your comments are so welcome. And if you didn't check out the card below please do so.
Oh this card used the card sketch from the Magnolia Birthday Bash blog here and the Just Magnolia challenge here for hot and spicy cards.

Gorgeous Peggie! I like the crystal sparkles on the white paper, it would also be pretty with the red sparkles too. I'm sorry, I'm no help at all.

I nix the red stickles. This card is so lovely I think they might just be one thing too many. and I repeat, this is a gorgeous card but IMO in this case, less is more.
