Surprise Ornament

I finally finished my Surprise ornament for the exchange in July! It seems like it took FOR-EV-ER!

This scan is just a bit washed out. The colors are still subtle, but a little more saturated than this. Michael said he really liked it when he saw it finished. I'm feeling rather uninspired about how to finish it. Any good ideas? I picked up a book on kumihimo at Stitches South. (Egad, I still need to blog about that!) How weird would it be to use an ancient Japanese braiding as a border for a primitive cross stitch design??
