Not knowing the size of your piece, if you baste it onto a firmer fabric, it would make a wonderful bolster-shaped (in proportion to the image) pillow for use on a sofa or bed. If it's small, you can turn the edges under and hand stitch it onto the base fabric. I would do some small hand stitches around selected motifs as well. If you prefer to hang it, you could stretch it over a ready-made canvas from an art supply store, or even a piece of museum board (available at better art supply stores, non-acid, won't harm your fabric) and have a framer make a larger (by 2" or more) acrylic box to "float" it in. As the piece appears very fine, I would use a background mat with more texture to show off its delicate quality.
