Clearly delightful challenge - blue + green

I just love Clearly delightful challenges - wish they were more often than once a month. Every time you play you get a free digi image. This month's challenge is to use blue and green on the card.
I decided to use a froggie on the lily pad I got couple months for playing in this challenge.
I was inspired by Laurie's watercoloring tutorial so I decided to watercolor the froggie too. So I printed the image on watercolor paper (my first time) and when I started to color it I realized that my laser printer was not very happy with the watercolor paper and the toner smeared. :( Tried heat setting it and tadaaa - no more smearing. The background panel is made with melted crayon technique and I added small touches of lilac to match the water lily. The green flower on the left is one of my first attempts to make this kind of ribbon flower ;)
I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
Allsorts challenge - animals
Lexi's Creations - animals
Alphabet challenge blog - A is for animals
Pile it On - boyish colors
