Not quite what it seems

This is why you should take your pictures in daylight. I'm really annoyed with myself about this because I didn't leave enough time to get a photo during the day. 

I made this as a prize for my workshop - a Valentine's card and 5-10-15-20 box (click here for instructions) filled with red heart chocolates (Sainsbury's; I think they were 79p for about 10-12). The card is embellished with one of the chocolates, too. 

What you can't see is that I stamped the background of both the card and the box with large red hearts and small red flowers. Honest, I did!

  5. I still like it... I know what you mean about picture taking... really could use the sun out alittle longer..

  6. Very impressive in this vibrant red! I can see a bit of the hearts on the background after enlarging the photo.

  7. I love it!! I never think to take pictures during the day, LOL! It's always a "crud, I forgot" and hurry to do it!

    It's lovely though- really!

  8. I believe you - really I do! Love this and not just because it has a chocolate on it! CC

  9. Very cute once again. I love the way you put the chocolate on there. I would have never thought about that :)
