Spicing It Up - Photo Frame Decorating

I thought my dad needed a photo of him and my mum on his office desk, so for Christmas I printed a nice photo of them from our wedding earlier this year, and put it in an ordinary wooden frame:
Of course I couldn't just leave it as is, so I decorated it just a tad:
Using a gold metallic leafing pen, I wrote on the frame the date of our wedding (the day the pic was taken), and added some leafy cardboard die-cuts, which, again, I've spray painted gold (it feels like I've been spray painting everything lately!) and glued on with craft glue.
It think it turned out cute. :)

In one word - classy! I have to add that your mother's charming personality (and dad's too) only adds to the poshness. Your parents look such a happy couple. Great decoration.
