Splish Splash and a Chillin' Bug Hop is almost here!

Wow- we go from spring to hot and sticky summer. Today is actually quite nice, a bit of sunshine and a light breeze. But when it gets steamy, thisis what looks good to me. Sitting in a tube in the middle of the lake. 
You could say this little gal is Chillin'!

She is just in time for the Grillin' & Chillin' Bug Hop coming your way on Saturday. 

I had the bug hop theme in mind when making this card, but then saw the challenge over at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week  is to use the card feature from any cart.
So I decided to give that a try. I also stickled on all the white lines in the water paper to make is shimmer like when the sun hits the water at the lake.

Here's how I did it....
Paper from my stash
Base card cut at 5.48" from A Child's Year using the card feature
Girl/layers cut at 2.94" on my gypsy from Pack Your Bags, p. 35--added pop dots to here so she is floating above the water
Ribbon from my stash
Setniment from My Creative Times My Favorite Sayings stamp set
Face from PKS Basic Doll faces
Flower brad and doodles with my gel pen.
