Thank you so much....I always appreciate your critiques. I have a heck of time with "yellows" and this one worked out fairly well.

I did a DIY box using foam core board and the back piece on this one was black. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Nicely done, Amanda! I don't get those results with black foam core. I usually use black velvet. I've even tried black felt and they just don't look right to me. But, yours.... Niiiiiiice!
