It's wonderful. I'm so jealous of your mad skillz, I've tried to paper cut before and it was pathetic. I like the tiny animals!

First of all, you did a great job on your cuttings! I have done german papercutting for over 25 years. The only advice I might give is....
The cutting will usually be more striking if it has more contrast, such as black against white, or light cutting against forest green . You could do several frames in a row on a wall, each being matted and framed individually. I never pay to have mine framed, or matted. There are several websites you can get ideas, and where people share patterns. Cindy Fergusen, from salt Lake City does several blogs of her work, and she shares some of her patterns. She does this for a living.... and she is really GOOD. Google groups has a german papercutting sharing site. Good luck !
