Make a Splash, spring rains are coming!

This is my second post today.  If you are looking for 'Happy Hello' click scroll down.
The only fun thing about the heavy rains of spring (other than the flowers it brings forth) is getting to go out and play in the puddles.  Splashing around is something I did as a child and did with my boys when they were little.  I'm sure they are "too old" to do it now!  LOL

This is a wonderful Dustin Pike image.  I just love it!  The puddle, the boots, the yellow rain slickers!  Just like when I was a little!
The heads of both animal and the legs of the rabbit are all cut out a second time and pop dotted.  The sentiment (from Create with TLC) is also raised on pop dots.  The coloring is done with copics, the bubble DP is DCWV and the cardstock is dry embossed with a CB embossing folder.  The ribbon is from Joann's.
I have glazed the water and splashes with diamond glaze.  It looks wet IRL!  The brads are from my stash.
