Thank you to all who gave their input earler . And A special thanks to Tutor for the pattern. I desided to go with the red and black backer, now I'm second guessing my choice of frames. Everyone here at home likes the dark frame. But as I read in other posts just because you dont like it dont mean some one else will love it, so we will see what happens. All criticism is wellcome Be Gentle

I can't see anything to criticize. Looks like a great cutting. Just my two cents..... I like it in the dark frame. The contrast helps make the cutting stand out more. Pat

Looks great and I agree, the darker frame sets off the piece much better.

The lighter frame gets lost since it's close to the same color as the piece itself.

Dark frame is the winner as far as I'm concerned as well. But I lean toward the less ornate frames anyway.
