CropStop Sketch Challenge-Scout Luka Memorial Day Card

It's June already and to tell you the truth I am in shock! How can it be June already?? How did those other months fly by so fast?? I feel like as I get older the time flies faster and faster. I feel like I have so much to do and so little time to do it in. I just want life to slow down a little, KWIM?!

There is one good thing about's my turn to post projects this month for CropStop... YIPPEE! I know I've already got a million things to do with it being summer break, but they have the most amazing challenges that really get my creative juices flowing. If you haven't checked out the CropStop Challenge Blog, you should definitely head over there and join in. There are always amazing prizes up for grabs!

The challenge this week is a sketch by our fabulous sketch designer, Gloria. Here is my Scout Luka Memorial Day Card using her amazing sketch. I flipped the sketch on it's side. I embossed the Recollections Kraft Cardstock with Cuttlebug Floral Screen Embossing Folder. Then I rubbed Walnut Stain Distress Ink over the embossed areas to bring them out a little. I embossed the blue cardstock strip (from my stash) with Cuttlebug Stars Embossing Folder, and rubbed CTMH white ink over the top of the stars. I glued thin red ribbon behind the lacey tan ribbon. Some of the red swirls were made using my QuicKutz Flourish Die and some were made with my new Magnolia Heart Swirl Die.

I colored my Scout Luka with Copics and chalk. I also added CTMH Liquid Glass to the magnifying glass and his little belt buckle. The Chocolate Pearls are from CTMH...aren't they gorgeous!

Here's a side view so you can see some of the dimension. I raised Scout Luka and the embossed kraft cardstock on popdots.
