Time for another sketch!
I ended up moving the patterned strip to the left side of the card. Sometimes you can try to use a sketch to the t, and it doesn't quite work, but modifying it just a bit can make all the difference. Perhaps if I had used a different image and placed the image more to the left, having the patterned strip on the right would have been more balanced.
Here's my card:
Some measurements:
Card Base: 4-1/4x5-1/2
Main Panel: 2-1/4x4-1/2
Terracotta Pieces: 2-1/4x1-1/8 (bottom), 2-1/4x1-1/4 (top)
Side Strip: 3/4x5-1/2
Stamps: Leaf Prints, Masculine Motifs, Woodgrain Background Basics
Ink: More Mustard, Summer Sun, Dark Chocolate, Dusty Durango
Paper: Rustic Cream, Kraft, Terracotta Tile, Dark Chocolate
Accessories, etc.: Woodgrain Impression Plate, Ribbon, Leaf Prints die,
