Black Background?

or White background?  Your thoughts?

I LOVE this:  "Life may not always be the party we hoped for, but while we're here, we might as well DANCE".

Great project!! I love the quote!

Sammi said...

Wow! Great kit and love your mini frame... I think the white background is probably better when you've used the black cardstock! Otherwise it gets a little lost in the background!

FibreJunky said...

Interesting qiestion. The photo side loojs better on the white background, bit the pink side looks better on the black background. It has ,ore depth. ,aybe it needs some other neutral colour? I'd have to pkay with it a while to find the perfect solutipn. Either way, the project, and yor daigher, are gorgeous.

lynn said...

Oh wow, this is so pretty! (Isn't she a real cutie!)
White background for me, the black bg kinda looses the card effect.
