Mud Puddles

I made this card for a Stamping Vacation challenge but sadly Denise has had to put all challenges on hold due to family circumstances.  She is right - family always comes first.

The challenge was to be all about 'Mud Puddles'.   We have had a few of those this year. 
I remembered I had this wonderful image in my collection which I have never used.  It is from Arthur's Clipart.  I coloured it with my Copic pens and happy now that I have two shades of the same colour so I can do some shading.  Although I will have to learn how people leave those white areas in the appropriate places and so forth.  When I printed out the image I added this great quote with it.
To create the card I started with a sketch challenge for Mojo Monday but I am missing a square so can't enter the challenge but thankful for the help.  I used Java Bazzill card then a layer of SU patterned paper and a layer of red Bazzill card.  Along the bottom I added a strip of SU card.  Dug out my Just Rite stampers for the Happy Birthday sentiment.  Used my spellbinder circle and scalloped edged circles to cut the sentiment out.  Finished with some bling.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
