Have done this for the weekly challenge on the Lots to Do Challenge blog, the theme being "oriental".
The frame is made from 4 Jenga type wooden blocks, glued together painted with acrylic then "antiqued with rub-on wax in gold.Hand made paper on the back, a "screen" of patterned vellum then the decoupaged lady. Satin ribbon around the outside completes the piece.
The frame is a bit rustic looking but that makes it look older which I quite like!

Struggled with this for a while until I felt it was somewhere near right!
It is about 16in x 12in. The background is a very thick handmade paper with some foliage & petals trapped in the layers. I have done a print with a fern & fabric paint, used embroidery thread, faux jewels & pearl paint to make the 'lavender' style stems with paints, inks, stamps, buttons & ribbon etc for the rest. The butterfly was a print- enlarged, coloured with Twinkling H2os, then glazed & distressed.
