Paper Smooches Sparks - Anything Goes

Hey everyone!  Hope you are having a great week so far.  I'm away for work (on a ship... in the Arctic!) but did bring a couple of cards along with me to blog. 

The Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge this week is 'Anything Goes'.  Using a couple of my favourite sets, Smarty Pants and I Heart Art, I pulled together this card.  I used the chalkboard technique and coloured the white embossing with Copic markers.  There is Diamond Glaze on the glasses, just to make him look even more geeky (kinda' like me, although my glasses aren't quite that thick!).  I realize now, I should have taken the photo on a darker background. Oops!  Also, I forgot bring my supply list with me so I'm going plead ignorance on the patterned papers I used.
I'm going to apologize again for being behind on my commenting.  Summer has just been a *little* bit busy.  I will try to catch up when I get home... because September will be even busier... but more about that at a later date.
