Celebrate the day with Edwin

This card is for three challenges:
The sketch from ICS is perfect for a boy card. I love all of the squares and Edwin fits perfectly in the center. I used blues, greens, and golds for this card. I matted each square and Edwin with gold. I added some triangle gold buttons on some of the squares and a green round one on the sentiment. The sentiment says 'someone like you should be celebrated every day'.

Here is a close up of Edwin. I used my Copics to color him including YG63 for the Copics color challenge.

The inside is a little plainer than what I normally do but you can't really add flowers to a boy card, at least not this one.

Stephanie, Your color is amazing on this card of Edwin. I could only wish my copic coloring looked so good. This looks like a difficult sketch. You pulled it off with flying colors.
