Hey Big Spender...

OHHHH... how much more could I love this Sugar Daddy set from Bombshell? I LOVED coloring it and embellishing it and just giving this guy his personality! It was really fun to make the money look like he was just throwing it all around...(my kinda guy...LOL) and holding his winning hand!

I used crystal effects on his eyes,nose and tongue to give them a realistic look. I added the rhinestone ribbon slide to compliment his flashy wardrobe and here he is... in all his glory! Thanks for popping in and have a great day!
