The Cure for the Winter Blues

Over at Moxie Fab World, Cath has set us a new challenge to use the up and coming navy blue.  Several of her photo inspirations made me think of this new Hero Arts background stamp called Leaf and Floral  Background. Then I remembered thinking when I first saw it that this medallion from an older set would be a good match for it.  So here was my chance to try their pairing.  What do you think?
