Finishing Freebie from Blackbird Designs

I finished the cross stitch a few weeks ago but finally completed the finishing today. I added a trim with beads to the bottom and black silk cording around the whole pinkeep. The back has a black upholstery sample with green and pink dots. This freebie chart from Blackbird Designs can be found at the following address:

It was a quick finish and came out very Ooh-La-La!
