Need your opinion please

Can you help me decide whether to leave this card with the black mat on its own, 
or whether to mat it again onto a white card.
It's for my sister Maggies birthday next week, and I can safely post this today 
as she neither crafts nor blogs!

I have used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies with the matching Botanical Blooms stamp set.
The colour combination is black, white and Crumb Cake, combined with a bit of bling,
using Silver Glimmer Paper, Iced Rhinestones and Basic Rhinestones.

Here's the card without the white behind it

And now with the White card behind it

So this is where I'd like you to tell me which you think has the best effect?
I really can't decide for myself, so if you can let me know your thoughts, 
I really would appreciate your opinion.
Hope to hear from you soon!

  11. Both versions look great - but I probably like the white background best, the design seems clearer and more striking, I think

  12. Both lovely but I would Matt it again on to a White card x
