Adding a decorative frame

I looked through my collection of clip art books to find a decorative border in a horizontal format. I wanted something geometrical to complement the curving lines of my flower drawing. I found just the right frame in Persian Ceramic Designs (Stemmer House, 1983).

I scanned the Persian art, selected and removed the material inside the frame, and then copied and pasted in the scan of my pencil drawing.
