Not sure about this card I made

I used a piece of blush cardstock from Carousel as my cards base, then stamped the Baroque Motif swirls across the top of the card. Next, I took a piece of Mellow Moss and I attached a piece of white cardstock to it using my photo stickers! Then I stamped the leaf sprig from the Best Blossom set using the Niagra Mist Dew drop ink pad, and I stamped the larger flower from the Best blossom set, using the Malted Mauve Dew drop stamp pad. Next, I stamped the flowers stem (from the Best Blossom set) just under the flower and then I attached them to the cards base using the photo stickers. I added some brown ribbon across the center of the card, just over a bit of the Baroque motif swirl stamped images, I then placed the flowers stamped image in the center of my card, just over part of the Baroque Motif stamped images. I then made a little tag using Mellow moss, a piece of white cardstock and I used the ticket punch for the corners. Then I used the mini photo dots to raise up the tag on the cards base, and I also stamped the sentiment "Cherish" onto the little tag to make it look a little more elegant. As I said in my title box, I am not too sure about this card...I just am not too happy with it :(! What do you think about it???

Here is another question for you, what kind of glue do you use on your cards?? The reason I am asking is because I have been told that after awhile (a short while) that the layers or ribbon that I have glued onto the cards has come undone. So I am in need of some good quality glue, that will ensure my cards won't fall apart...the glue that I was using was said to be really good and won't loose it's adhesiveness (lol, or whatever you call that). That was a totally misleading statement!!!
