Bug Collector

I had got my framer to get some samples of brightly coloured frames for Bug Collector last time I was in there. But when they came none of them were right, so I've been thinking of other options to finish it off.

So when I went to town the other day I popped into the fabric shop to see what they had. I came away with this:

I thought I'd use the black as the backing, possibly folded around to the front for an outer frame - not sure if I'd only want it thin, or wide enough so that whole butterflies could be seen. And the green would be my 'mat'. But now I'm second guessing myself and wondering if a blue would be better. What do you think? And how wide would you make the black if you folded it around to the front?

PS. The caterpillar chart is still on my list of things to do - I haven't forgotten yet.

I'd be worried the black would overpower it if it was really wide(but that's just me - I'm not courageous with colours). I like how the green fabric picks up the greens in the design. :0)

I like the idea of keeping the black thin myself. Though a solid blue would be really nice and would not compete with the green fabric at all.
