Art Quilt in Progress..border choice

Love those tropical colors.
This is one of my new art quilts in progress. I'm going to add one more border, interviewing colors now. What do you think?
I am liking the lime a lot.
This is a fun technique; make strip fabric by sewing together varying widths of scraps or yardage. Cut into blocks, square or rectangle, add sashing if you want and various borders. The best results come with lots of contrast in color and print. Layer top with batting and backing and machine quilt it to death. Embellish with hand embroidery.
There are some Kaffe Facet fabrics in this.
