Bug Me

I had a fun time cutting this card.  Well, it was cutting and cutting.  This cute bug is from Doodle Pantry.  The set is called Classic Bug and Gas Can.   I enlarged the bug to 5 1/2 inches to almost 3 1/2 inches.  I folded the base and left it attached together a little at the top.  I do with I would have left a little more space at the top.  You can see it in the picture below.  I then printed the bug on white, grey, orange, pink, and the designer paper with the flowers on it.  Then I started the cutting and layering on the base bug. Finally I added a little glitter on all the little flowers.
This is the inside of the bug card.  The sentiment is also from the digital set. 
I would like to submit this card into these challenges:
Cards In Envy - Feeling Buggy

Pile It On - Humor
The Squirrel and The Fox - For the Girls
