For Dina's Opposites Attract MIXed media challenge.
When I looked at the colour wheel this morning I was thinking of the violet/yellow-orange colours. But when I got home from work and shopping, and went to pull out the stamp I typically use for colour challenges, my eye was drawn to the TH butterfly, so I changed my colour scheme to green and red. And it's almost a one layer card, too.
Reverse masked the card front with a loosely torn square, stamped the Reverse Damask in the centre in mowed lawn DOX and stamped the grid in black.
Removed the mask, added some chunky white EP, which I allowed to spill out over onto the white area in places.
The butterfly was stamped in black on watercolour paper and embossed, then I coloured it with Brushos (scarlet, ost red) and added some gold Sprinkle It. I'll add a close-up in the challenge thread. Added some wire antennae.
Sentiment is a PTI set Cheryl gave me - I die-cut the sentiment twice and stacked it, coloured it with a clear glitter pen. Stamped the sentiment in white on black and embossed, tore the edges, went over them with the clear glitter pen and popped it up on foam.

Fabulous! I only ever think of putting red and green together for Christmas cards, but it is great here! And what a beautiful butterfly - thanks for putting a close-up photo of it in the challenge thread.

Sabrina, you've chosen a lovely scripture for the simplistic beauty of this card. I really like the damask over-stamped with the grid which reminds me of a garden trellis and the overall design and color scheme are well suited for either gender.
