Beautiful, and so well captured. I have got to start using my black velvet background! Looks wonderful. <>< #1661693

Thanks, Shirley. The background was actually quite dark here - deep shade, except for one spot behind the top (unfortunately as that made the part where the center sticks up a bit tricky). I do like the way color pops against black, though, and I have used a black drop cloth behind flowers before to good advantage. #11488939
