Day 314 at 365 cards

For this challenge we had to follow a sketch.  It looked so simple, until I tried to do it.  I had a hard time deciding what really went together, and then getting the proportions right.  I was definitely too literal on this one, trying to get things to line up.  I almost didn't blog this one, it still feels like its missing something.    The blue square doesn't look straight in the photo but it measures straight on the card.  I like the little rose die cut I had in my stash and used that as my focal point and inspiration for color choices.  Maybe I should have used a light green instead of the yellow square?  I was pulling the yellow from the striped square.
