"Lily of the Valley" Oil Study on Paper

Oil on paper, 6"x6"
I've been wanting to try painting on paper again, and on my latest trip to the art store, I found a small pad of Strathmore "Acrylic" paper, with a linen finish! So cool!!!! I put gesso on it, and did this small painting of a lily of the valley. It was a very nice surface to paint on!!
I'm a little unsure of how a painting like this would be framed. I'm thinking I would probably mount the paper to a board, and then frame like any other oil painting?
