Yeah, I'd actually advise you'd avoid Comic Sans MS. Many people rage when they see that font.

If you have an idea of what you are going for for a background (Like maybe some small dithering texture.) it's usually pretty easy to quickly hack up one in Photoshop or GIMP...

If you are looking for a background that emphasizes on shapes or lines, vectoring is a very useful skill to have too. (With Illustrator or Inkscape.)

Usually taking things off the web unless they are specifically marked as "stock" is a bad idea unless it's for a single page deal like an article.
