Napier Green with Numbers.

Here is some more inspiration for the current Butterfly Challenge
For this card I have chosen to showcase the colour Napier Green and teamed it with the theme of Numbers. Inadvertently I have also used Naples yellow/ Navy/ Not Square so have in fact used 6 of the  elements from the wheel. 
I have used white cardstock to make the base and then layered up with green card stock. Before I adhered the green I positioned where I would be putting the trellis work and then die cut randomly some numbers using Sizzix 661163 Metal birthday numbers. (Choice of numbers wasn't quite as random as I needed a 7 and an 0 to be in there as this card is for The Docs cousin whose birthday is on Friday). I put snippets of navy cardstock behind those numbers to not so subtly show the  age! 
Trellis is a Tonic Studios die 'Parquet Trellis Set' and the sentiment has been cut twice and layered up using my Xcut Happy Birthday die cut. The stamped butterfly is the same one as shown on the Butterfly Wheel (though coloured differently) and is a Marianne Design from their clear stamp set CS0927. 
There is still over a week to join in the challenge so I hope you will come and Spin The Wheel.
