Is it correct to say "The color scheme of the pattern is made in different shades of blue and green."?
Or it's better to say: the color scheme uses/includes/consists of? Which option is preferable?

A colour scheme (also called palette) is a choice of colours, so it's not made of nor does it use anything.
You could say 'the colour scheme comprises different shades of blue and green'.
Consists of will also work, as pointed out by Kate Bunting above.
If you say 'includes', that would suggest to me that there are other colours in the scheme besides greens and blues, but for some reason you choose to highlight the greens and blues.
