This entry is for both the LSCbonus4 and Inspiration Challenge 56. I used the Headline Alphabet for the word LOVE and then use an image from a retired set called Topiary 1995 to create the vining leaves around the letters. I used my Cuttlebug swirling embossing template to create the pattern and then used my leaf template to cut leaves to match. I used my brayer to roll Old Olive ink over the embossed leaves to give texture. I popped up the leaves across the top of the card for embellishment.

Okay, I have posted this three times now. I just bought a cuttlebug about 30 minutes ago and this card and others posted in this challenge make me so glad I did and so excited. That is the coolest idea ever to cut out the leaves from the embossed part. Leave it to you, Kittie!

The second the thumbnail caught my eye, I just knew it had to be you, Kittie. This is absolutely amazing! You must have the green re-inkers on auto ship. I just love what you did with the vines twining around the letters. It is truly inspirined! (Here's a reason not to get rid of old sets.) I am also loving what you did with your Cuttlebug! The leaves are incredible!
