LMMS: Ryker Smile

Good Morning!

It's time for a new challenge over at  Little Miss Muffet Challenges and as always it's an Anything Goes Challenge. Here is what I've created using Polka Dot Pal Ryker and one of the faces from Polka Dot Pals Add-on Faces. I always need some male/boy cards and it seems that I don't have one on hand...yikes... trying to get better at that. This image is perfect for different occasions too so I definitely had to color him up. :D

I used Copic markers to color him up. 
I was extremely indecisive on the skin and clothes
for some reason....  Then I decided to go with a 
green even though the background is green and maybe I should of gone with a 
muted red or some type of reddish brown. I don't know maybe I'll do another card.  
I also want to try another card with "mess" with the texture of the hair. 
Back to the green... heehee since I colored his gree and I had already picked and cut
up the paper to make the card I left a white edge when cutting the image.
I typically do not like leaving the white and I didn't like it agains the green
so I glued the image on black cardstock and left an edge around that and to me
it really pops and he doesn't fade into the background.
Oh yea! I almost forgot to mention that the paper is from the Michael's Recollections line.
I bought the big 12x12 when it was on sale I think I paid a little more than $5-tax included.
A couple weeks later I saw the same stack but in the 6x6 pad but I didn't
buy it cause I was trying to quickly buy something else while I was supposed to be
grocery shopping... (shhhh don't tell my husband... or my kids) 
but also the 6x6 paper cost more than the 12x12! What's up with that?
The 6x6 paper cost $5.99 and no good coupons available that week. LOL
Here is a close up. 
I added Glossy Accents (that I did but with a 50% off coupon a different week LOL) 
to the lens to give it that "glass" look and same with the flash.

The "Smile" die and the "polaroid" die with the sentiment are all from My Creative Time.

I hope you liked my card and didn't get bored with my rambling.
