You will probably have to construct it yourself. Download http://members.pcug.org.au/~rcook/scribus/Decoration.svg and import into a new scribus document, then upgroup it which will allow you to remove the border to the decoration if you want.

I am not sure of your end product look and shape, but that will give you a start. When finished , save it as a template for future use.
