Blue and green

The challenge at the Speedy Fox & Friends challenge is to make a blue and green card.  They are two of my favorite colors, together or apart, so I had to play!  I decided to use a shade of blue that is almost impossible to find nowadays - everything has gone to the green-blue, aqua tones, instead of this sky blue, Wedgewood blue, country blue that I so love.  I have a few ancient printed papers with this color and that's what I used, pairing them with this fresh spring green.  Here's my card:

Blue & Green

supplies: blue, green, and white cardstock, DCWV blue stripe, various blue printed papers, flowers from Hero Arts CL527 Stitched Frame and CL496 Layered Flowers, Memory Box Meadow Leaf die, sentiment from Northwoods stamps, VersaFine onyx black ink, Martha Stewart doily edge punch, Sizzix little flower embossing folder

  8. So pretty, Lin! That shade of blue is very difficult to find; glad you have some in your "stash"! I just sent in four cards using cobalt and lime (BoBunny dots) with white. Crossing my fingers :)
