    I'm trying to use up my Gone with the Wind scraps and I'm debating whether or not the brown is "too" much of a border. I'm leaning towards -- it looks fine. I really don't want to have to go out and buy a border and I'm limited to options in my stash.

    Opinions?????

    Is green better?????

    For my taste it is "too" much,

    Maybe a narrow border and then finish it with a darker more solid? :D:D:D

    I think it's a lot. My instinct is to go suggest something more calming and not so busy.

    Trust your instincts. Too busy is how it reads to me and I think a calmer, less busy border would be more pleasing to you.

    Tough decision for you, with a fairly even split in helpers choices...

    But I think it's fabulous..
