Sing in the Rain!

Good Morning! Today I have a card that has been on my mind and heart for awhile...I've been wanting to use my new Stampavie Gillian Roberts stamp, "Under My Umbrella" with a sentiment that would encourage a friend through their storms in life. I computer-generated the "Sing in the Rain!" sentiment and matching verse on the interior of the card, shown below:
I wanted to create some rain drops on the main image, but was a little leary of doing so, for fear of messing up my whole image, but I grabbed a Sakura Stardust Clear Glitter Pen and just drew some straight flicks with the pen and hopefully, in the closeup photo below, you can see my efforts. What do you think? The pink flower in the middle of the gingham ribbon bow was a decorative pin - I removed the stick pin part with wire cutters and glue-Zotted it onto the center of the bow.
