I love that it is different from the traditional red/pink/black for Valentine's (not that there's anything wrong with that). It's a lovely representation of the song and perfectly appropriate for the challenge. Smiley

Thank you all  Smiley

Actually, red, black & silver are my favorite colors so it was real hard not to use them in this, but I wanted to try to use colors that I don't usually associate with Valentine's. Originally I was going for blues on the outside...  the first coat of paint  was a dark blue for the sky at night, but then I put a sort of coppery brown glaze over it and it changed the whole color scheme.

the tiny frame was easier to make than I expected... I started out punching a 1 inch square window in cardstock and then started building it from there.. I may take that idea about an inchie and put one in there later

The colours are beautiful... I love the browns with the dusty pinks. I also really love the way you combined two matchboxes and included that little frame. Great job!

This is beautiful.  Such wonderful crispness, as well as a very fun concept of night and day splitting the scene of the box.  Smiley  By far my favorite part is the frame...it's adorable!

thank you  Smiley

the frame turned out much better than I expected and I have to admit that it was the simplest of the ideas I had for the surprise, it was a fun project to work on
