Actually, I think the busy background adds a lot of movement to your piece. I like it very much!

Thanks Carol Ann! I'm making a few more as gifts--really enjoying the technique!

I like it, too. It has neutral colours and the busyness adds some sparkle :o) By the way, if you can't find fabrics you like in your local shop, online shops or eBay are a good option - I got some gorgeous fabrics that way. And garage sales, of course...
