Watcha Diana,
well taken image, and a nice frame imge; however, I don't think they're doing anything for each other, although it is an interesting juxtaposition, possibly work beter in B&W, or, the nature of the frame is tintype, stress the colour pic inside it.

Hello Diane.
Such a lovely picture it is, but imo, what a shame of the frame.
You got a lot of comments on it, didn't read them, but this is worth to redo without that frame.
None the less, complements for this picture itself.
