CYP Challenge #18 with a little bit of love

Ever have one of those days when no matter how many times you photograph something it never seems to look right? First,  I was in a rush trying to get this card uploaded for the Craft Your Passion Challenge which should have clued me in, but after taking about 20 shots I still wasn't satisfied. I loved coloring this digi image and I have to admit that I am so bummed that the pictures are not doing it justice, but please trust me that it is way cuter in person. {smile}

Challenge 18 at CYP is to use Red, Green and Black. At first I was worried that it would look to Christmas-y {is that a word? it should be} because of all the Red and Green but I think I pulled it off by using this adorable Frog image by CocoDingo. The frog is actually colored twice, cut out and layered on top of each other for a little dimension.

Well, back to taking more pics and hopefully improve my technique! Enjoy.
