Mix little bit of white to lower square. To do that select the square, hold down Ctrl button and click on white color at the color palette. One click will not be enough. Eight clicks did the job for me.

Then I’m going to add a drop shadow effect to sticky node shape. To do that select it using pick tool. Press “+” sign key at the num pad. This will make a duplicate copy on top of yellow shape. Fill with it black. Press and hold Ctrl button and press END button to send it back of yellow shape. Move it little bit right and down sides.
