A Spoon Full of Sugar - Blue and Green!

It's time for another challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar and this week we are giving you a color challenge!
Remember the old saying "Blue and Green should never be Seen"? well this week we are throwing that to the wind as we want you to combine those two colors in your project!
Also I want to bring to notice the wonderful fundraiser called Help for Katie. Katie is a fellow crafter who was dealt a very hard blow just before Christmas when she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Gastric Cancer. She is mom and a wife and her whole family is facing this very tough battle. Many talented digital artists have come together to create a package of images for you to purchase and the profits will go to Katie's family to help with medical bills and to help out her children through this very trying time.
I chose the super image from Mo Manning and will be using others from this super selection in the coming weeks. If you want to help out or even just read a little more then please go to Help for Katie and give if you can to help a fellow crafter in her hour of greatest need.
