Foiled again

I'm in a group that does a themed COTM every month. This month's theme was a Valentine using embossed foil. (That seems really specific to me. I would have preferred embossed foil OR Valentine, but not both, but that's neither here nor there for you, is it?)

The foil is embossed with a Sizzix folder. (The video the COTM director linked to showed you embossing the foil straight through the Cuttlebug with no backing, but when I tried it, the embossing broke through the foil, so I glued foil to cardstock and tried again. Maybe I just have cheap foil?)

The pink and red paper is from a Chistmas mat pack I got at Michael's.  That color combo does not say Christmas to me.

Not sure who makes the gorgeous die-cut, as this was an RAK.  Sentiment is from Purple Onion Designs.

This card is for these challenges:
Die Cut Divas -- pink and red
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday -- The Color of Love
Cuttlebug Mania -- lots of red
Catch the Bug -- anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #268 -- anything goes
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge -- anything goes

  5. That Christmas paper looks suspiciously Valentine-y to me! Great card. That foil looks brilliant.
