SBS Sketch Challenge & HDH073 Smudgetastic

Betty's daughter, Rio, is turning 13. She's asked her Mom if all the money she gets for her birthday can go to St. Jude's.  How do you say no to that?  Absolutely precious.  So, Betty had a limited edition Rio Birthday digi drawn up, available only until 2/8/11, her actual birthday, with all the proceeds going to St. Jude's as well.  Betty has asked anyone who purchases this digi to make a birthday card for Rio, so on her special day she's got lots of special things, to let her know how special she is.  I got right on it.  I decided to use the sketch challenge over at Simply Betty Challenges as my layout, and here ya go--

I love this image.  It's so cute.  I'm also entering this in this week's HDH challenge, Smudgetastic.  Make your project using pastels, or charcoal, or the like.  I smudged those little tickets down there with some pastels I just got (and I turned blue and pink as well).  I've never used pastels before, so that's as far as I got.  I'm gonna go shower off my new Oompa Loompa look now.
