Hero Arts: Cheers + Bridal Blog Hop Winners!

Hello and Happy Sunday!  I have a card that uses a total of five Hero Arts stamp sets and 3 Hero Arts ink pads:

Definitely not my typical design...lotsa inky goodness on this.  The background is made from the Color Layering Grateful Leaves.  Aren't they beautiful in Ombre Autumn?  The have been layered with Cup 'O Joe ink.  I smooshed Tea Dye distress ink on an acrylic block, spritzed with water and smooshed on top of the leaves.  

The tag has the Forest and Deer Bold Prints stamped in Soft Brown Shadow ink.  The Holiday Messages and Tags  has then been layered with the Ombre Autumn.  The coffee cup from City Adventures has been stamped in Cup 'O Joe and the sleeve has been colored with coordinating copics.  The sentiments, including Cheers Messages by Lia, are stamped in Cup 'O Joe ink.  I distressed the edges, finished off the bottom with a Pretty Pink Posh Scallop Border and topped the tag off with May Arts twine.

My card was inspired by the current  Coffee Loving Cardmaker's challenge:  CASEing DT

Isn't Cris' card AMAZING?!!!!!!!!!!!  Her cards are ALWAYS chock full of details!  I absolutely ADORE her style!
