Funny little color challenge card

Late again for the color challenge round-up. I kept checking all day yesterday, because I thought Kristina had been posting the challenges on Tuesdays. I finally saw the challenge this morning, but I have been sooo busy today, I just couldn't get to it. I made a card anyway, as it seems these challenges really help motivate me to make things I otherwise would not have made. This card is a perfect example- I'm not even sure if I like it.

Okay, here's my funny little card:

It is what it is. It evolved from an idea I had to case the technique booklet cover, to something else, to something else again. It was supposed to be 4x4, but I should have realized to cut the card a little wider, so that after I added the strips, I could trim the sides to make everything neat and tidy. So it wound up being 4" x, oh I don't know- maybe 3-3/4".

I used the SAB rub-ons for the sentiment and the little black leaves, and also in the flower centers. Everything is SU! except for the black brad and the little tiny punched flower center.
I think I would really love this in spring colors. LMK what you think.

I also follow Kristina, but I didn't have time to make the card... If you make yours a little bit bigger is a perfect scrapbook page. I like what you did.
