Angry Help with custom background image

I have been fooling with trying to add a custom background image for my frame with no success.

I have created a png image and used the blp converter and still have yet to get something other than a green box to show on my screen when i change the file location and name from the default frame background. Any help would be great . thanks.

    local AshStats = CreateFrame("frame", "AshStatsFrame")
    AshStats:SetBackdrop({ bgFile="Interface\\DialogFrame\\UI-DialogBox-Background",  -- I change this to the addon folder and file name

        tile=1, tileSize=32, edgeSize=32,
        insets={left=11, right=12, top=12, bottom=11}
    AshStats:SetScript("OnDragStart", function(self) self:StartMoving() end)
    AshStats:SetScript("OnDragStart", function(self) self:StartMoving() end)
    AshStats:SetScript("OnDragStop", function(self) self:StopMovingOrSizing() end)

There are a few traps. The file might not be found ? (Restart of WoW required, Reload is not enough)
