This is the LED flashing circuit, since the shape used in this circuit was hearth shape, then we call it LED flashing heart circuit. The circuit is quite simple, low cost, easy to built. Alternatively, you could be create another shape, not just heart shape.

Once power has been applied to the circuit, the Red LEDs should all be flashing on and off together. The Yellow LEDs should be flashing on and off, but only every other Yellow LED should be on at one time. The Green LEDs will stay on at all times. The flash rate can be adjusted by turning R9. Connections for a fixed value resistor for R9 are provided on the board layout if preferred.To dress up the project, a favorite photograph can be placed in the heart, and a frame can be made to fit the circuit board.
