LEM Photo Challenge: Valentine's

Tara at Live Every Moment hosts a weekly photo challenge. The theme for this weeks photo was Valentine's.
I set out to capture the look of a vintage valentine. I took a photo of two of my Tom Clark figures that I've collected over the years. I took them with a plain white background and then added some texture and played with the light and finally added a frame.
All in all I'm pretty pleased. I hope my friends and family who see this totally forget it. It will probably be my Valentine Card next year!
To see more participants in this challenge join Tara here.

Seriously I thought at first that this was a photo of a photo - your edit was so effective in making it look vintage - great edit and a lovely valentine's card.
