    Thank you. I have a dark blue or a lavender but I think that I would need to use purple darker than lavender.

    Would it look okay if I use the black as the outer border and a royal blue as the backing?

    I don't think it matters what you use for the back. Not sure about black borders.

    I love the dark purple and think it would make a great border.
