Do Central American Tree-Frogs speak in Spanish or what?

Well, I guess if frogs could talk, we'd know, right?  LOL.  This beautiful creature is done by Deborah Boyet of Blackberry Lane Designs.  I am so happy to be on her DT and have the ability to color her images.  I like cute cards, but I quite like still life, also.  I never knew that there were so many types of tree frogs; until I did research to color this one.  This is a red-eyed tree frog from Central America.

I had the hardest time getting the exact color I wanted, but finally I've gotten it to the point that  I don't mind saying I colored it.  I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol.   I'm entering this in a few challenges that are looking for spring inspired cards.  I do have a little floral background paper, and I hope the other bright colors will look a little springish.

Supplies used:

Image -  by Blackberry Lane Designs
Papers - From stash; some Bazzil, DCWV, and not sure about others
Punch: - MS
