Color Hues Challenge #8

Today's card was inspired by the current color combination over at the Color Hues Challenge Blog.  I haven't been able to play as often as I'd like but the color combination of blue and green was one I just couldn't pass up.

This challenge isn't as easy as it sounds.  Two colors are very limiting but I made it work with these die cut florals.

With the exception of the stamped Hello, this card is made entirely of die cuts.  I began by first splattering a blue panel with white and black acrylic paint to provide some interest to the background.  While it was drying I went about die cutting the florals and the leaves.  I used two shades of green, two shades of blue and white.  I added a bit of embossed interest to a few of the leaves.  I arranged them to my heart's content, added the sentiment strip and finished it off with some clear jewels.
