Foiled Valentine's Day Card

I had a small square of red foil wrapping paper left over from Christmas and decided to put it to use on a Valentine's Day card.  I embossed it and used alcohol inks (Cranberry, Red Pepper, Silver Mixative), pouncing them here and there all over the foil.  This gave it a really nice marbled look.  I attached the foil to the card base with Glossy Accents.  Over the foil, I layered a piece of white cardstock that I diecut an oval from (using Petite Scalloped Ovals Large).  I rounded the corners with a punch and attached to the foil again using Glossy Accents. 
In the oval opening I added the Filigree Hearts which I cut from the FANCY HEARTS SVG set out of white cardstock and attached with GA.  I cut a second file out of red cardstock and snipped just the hearts out.  These I folded in half and glued down along the crease.  I accented  down the fold with Liquid Pearls (Silver Pearl) and on the diecut oval points.  I also added Liquid Pearls (White Opal) at the top and bottom white diecut scrolls.  I finished by gluing on a ribbon.
