Hi crafters. I couldn’t resist making another card for the Blog named Hero October challenge.

I was inspired by Ericka Strange’s cards here. The panel was made with distress oxides on photo paper. I used seedless preserves, aged mahogany, vintage photo, wild honey and antique linen. I matted the panel on brown metallic card and plum coloured cardstock. The hugs die has 2 layers then Nuvo crystal drops. The die is from the March my monthly Hero kit. I dry embossed a strip of brown metallic cardstock with the Hero Arts bold graphic confetti die and placed the hugs on top of that.

Thanks for the challenge, these colours are gorgeous.
