Belated Birthday Wishes

I love a good sketch, pretty much always starting my card with one.  And this sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge really caught my eye because of those little square elements.  I've had this little kraft square in my bits and pieces stash and was wondering how in the world I was going to use it.  So, when I saw the sketch, right away I saw that square in my mind and this is how it turned out:
 I had a color combo in mind and I accidentally die cut a dark blue square instead of the light blue at first and then I had a miss cut with the first light blue square and I REALLY didn't want to put those into my bits and pieces stash, so I figured out a way to use them on the inside.

Stamps: PTI "Mat Stack 5" sentiment
Dies: Impression Obsession window die (the little squares are the window panes)
