Edwin's Thinking of You!

Hi! Here's the card I said I'm not too sure about. I colored up Edwin and the Heart on Sunday and then couldn't find paper or a layout ! Happens to me far too often! Finally, on Monday night I found this small heart paper on the back of another design and it looked better than the ones I'd been trying. The card base is 4.5" x 5.5"
Here he is close up!
Thanks for the great comments on all of our snow! I loved reading about the weather in other parts of the world and read them all to my DH!
Some of you are sweet enough to suggest that I do a tutorial. I'm sorry, but I really don't know how to do one. When I color I just blend like crazy with the blender or with a lighter color and keep a light area somewhere on the piece.
The colors on this card are:
E000, E01 and R20
Hair-I'm sorry, I didn't keep track.
Jeans B41,
Pinks R81, R83, R85, R89
Shirt, socks and arrow point E41, E43, E25
Around heart W00. W3
Stencil brush surrounding Aqua Mist.
