Looks awesome when complete
Background color is not stitched, its just the fabric color.
This is a great kit and includes all the string. However, my wife was disappointed to find that the light green background in the image is not cross stitched. It is just the fabric color. She bought a similar color string to use for the background so that the entire thing is solid cross stitching. This may or may not bother you but its good to know before buying.
Cool pattern and looks very nice once completed. May need to buy extra string for light green 'background' color.
