Raindrops keep falling on my head!

Wow is this our Indian Summer coming - its a glorious day again here in N London and I have to post this card about rain - never mind she is happy despite the rain on her head! I handstitched all around the image - really must get my machine out but it is SO heavy to lift onto the table - but when I get into the front room (which is soon to be my craft room) I can get it permanently out ready for use.
This one is going to 2 Challenges :~ Charisma Cardz 'Inspired by a Song' Challenge (can you guess the title?) and Moving Along With The Times 'Stitching' Challenge.

Hoping you all have a fabulous day wherever you are!

All papers were freebies from magazines;
Image is from My Craft Studio CD coloured with Promarkers~
Skin ~ Ivory, Blush & Pastel Pink;
Clothing ~ Blossom, Cool Grey 2, Apple, Ruby & Poppy;
Hair ~ Sandstone & Satin;
Puddles ~ Cool Grey 1, 2 & 3;
Raindrops were made using GlitzIt Sparkles.
