These thinlit dies, Sunshine Wishes, have been around for a couple years and I just LOVE them! I love the font of the script as well as the other shapes (heart, flower and butterfly) included in the set. This on definitely one of my “go-to” items in my stash of crafting tools.

The DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge this week it is a “Sketch Pad” Challenge, I like these challenges because the design is done for me…all I have to do is add my favorites and I have a great card in a short time. If you are like me, the design phase takes the most time.

I love the simplicity and timelessness of this sketch, it could be used for every occasion. Seems to me that the options are endless. Want to see what I came up with?

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down for complete supply list and links)

  • Paper:
    • Garden Green: 4-1/4″ x 11″ card base, 1/2″ x 4-1/8″, scrap for “congrats”
    • Powder Pink: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
    • Wood Textures Designer Series Paper: 2″ x 4″
    • 2017-2019 In Color Designer Series Paper: 3-1/4″ x 4″
    • Vellum: 1″ x 5-1/2″
    • Gold Glimmer Paper: scrap for heart
  • Accessories: Linen Thread, Metallic Pearls
  • Tools: Big Shot, Sunshine Wishes Thinlits Dies
  • Adhesive: SNAIL, Glue Dots
It’s All in the Details:

I love how all the elements came together but my favorite part how the “congrats” is tucked under the Linen Thread in a few places. I did this for a couple reasons…1) it helped hold it in place without using a lot of adhesive and 2) it adds interest being woven into the thread.
