More blues and greens for Country View

Hello I am back with my 2nd project as inspiration for the current blues and greens challenge over at Country View. You can see all the details via this link here.
I always love making backgrounds so I got out my box of Paperartsy Infusions which Susan sells over at the Country View Website here. I have lots of the colours and I love the walnut in them which give little brown overtures too. 

After my very elaborate mermaid card which you can see here I decided to go quite clean and simple for my 2nd card. I made my background using Slime (don't you just love those names) for the green part of the challenge
and A bit jaded for the blue
A sprinkled  them onto some watercolour card, added a little sprint of water and they did their magic to make my background.
Once dry I stamped a Visible Image sentiment and also a bird stamp and die by STAMPlorations to finish it off. 

Here it is 
with a close up of the Infusions background.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
