Pastel Thanks and a SugarSketch

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

EDIT~So sorry this did not post yesterday as it was supposed to everyone!

Don't mind me; I am just a school nurse counting down the days to the end of the school year!  Yep, 3 more Wednesdays and then 2 months of freedom!  In the meantime, I continue to try to find time in the evening to craft (such a stress reliever, no?) and am waiting for my mojo to come back home.
This week's sketch was a challenge for me~

Here is your sketch~

Since I am without mojo, I thought I would mix things up and venture outside of my comfort zone.  I typically do not use pastels, so went ahead and used a pastel watercolored paper for my card base- it was die cut with the SugarCuts Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles.  I also am not a shaker fan, so went ahead and did that on this card as well.  The various strips of paper- patterned, cs and vellum- are also outside my comfort zone.
Lastly, I experimented with something new, adding color and dimension to my SugarCuts  'Thanks'.

The bubbly little girl is from the What's Mew? Stamp Set- I fussy cut her out of the window scene and tucked her into the corner of my shaker window.
