I had taken her to the Rag Shop to be framed. They did an awesome job. The inside blue matt matches one of the blue shades in her ribbons. The white matt is actually a satin texture, like bridal shoes. The double matting works well for beads - giving more room so they aren't squashed against the glass. This may have also been my first exposure to adding beading to cross stitch.
It was a lovely project to do, I enjoyed the whole process. This pattern was a wonderful introduction to Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum's designs, and I have been a fan and "collector" of her patterns ever since.
