Select the rectangle tool.
Set the fill to be empty.
Set the border to be the color and size that you want.
Create a layer above the layer that your bitmap sits on.
Draw the rectangle over the bitmap.

Presto you have a border!  :)

wildbrookmedia,

I forgot to tell you that the bitmap is irregularly shaped.

Do you have photoshop or fireworks?  It would be easiest to add the border there, bring it back into flash and re-trace as a bitmap...
