(Danny, I tried the frame action, and I totally flopped! Got nothing even close to your results. I'll keep trying.)
Not to worry, Cat...that frame would have detracted from this outstanding work.

FWIW after I ran the action, I messed with Layer Styles quite a bit. The action just builds a basic frame.

Beautiful, Judy! ByRo was very wrong. Ive always admired your wild and colorful style but would never try to copy it.

One more take on this one. Started out as a watercolor but ended up as an oil.
