I finally have the wording for the title thanks to Angie Girl!

The picture is deceiving - the background is yellow not green, the rest of the colors are pretty true though...

what color would you use for the title? Green, Orange, Brown (from the blanket in the picture)?

I'd go with brown too, it might be hard to "see" the orange (i.e. the brown would pop out more).

I might be too late on this, but what about whatever color you choose with a subtle small polka dot print, such as the BoBunny double dot paper?

I'd go with orange, maybe with a brown mat. I think the orange would make the color in the photos pop more.

I think I would use dark blue. It would be a nice contrast and would add interest.

I like bright, clean looks so I would actually do the background paper in an orange and use white or natural alphas.....

You could use a brown font with an orange shadow background. Ink the edges of the orange shadow with brown to make it really stand out.

Which fonts do you have for your cricut? Keep in mind that in addition to the regular alphabet carts, many of the shape cartridges also include fonts. Here is a partial list of some I have found:
Sophisticated; Paper Lace 1 & 2; Ornamental Iron 2; Wall Decor & More; Quarter Note; Nursery Rhymes; Life is a Beach; A Child's Year; Cindy Loo; Nifty Fifties; Designers Calendar; and all the cake carts.

You could use a word processor on your computer to print out the title in one of the system fonts, and change the color of the font. Print it out on colored paper or cardstock and cut around the words.
