So Do You Think Anya Can Hula Dance?

You be the judge! 

I thought this was pretty cool.  I wanted Hula Anya to do the kaholo (side by side travelling step), maybe an 'ami (rotation of the hips) too!  Then it dawned on me . . . incorporate the Easel Card & a Slider Card together!  Now she can really dance!  With the plumeria haku in her hair (see them pop!) and the grass skirt, Anya is ready to dance her way into Christmas!  That is . . . a Very Merry Hawaiian Christmas!  For those that might not know the meaning of the Hawaiian word "Mele Kalikimaka", it simply means, Merry Christmas!   Check out the Sparkle Fibers on the snowflakes.  We don't get *SNOW* here on O`ahu so I figured I can wish hard through this card.

This card is up for several of challenges:

~ Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge #7 - create a Merry Christmas, Happy Winter card

~ Anyone for Anya? - Make A Fake Challenge!  Using fake lace (border punch), faux stitching and flowers!

~ Allsorts Challenge Blog #28 - Christmas Carol or Song Title!

~ Whimsy Stamps Challenge #29 - Create something that has "Christmas" in it.

~ Pollycraft Challenge #29 - Anything Christmas Themed

~ One Stop Craft Challenge #56 - Snowflakes!

~ Cute Daisy May Challenge - Red Christmas

DP from my stash, carstock, border punch, word window (SU) punch and snowflake punches, nesties, dew drops, sparkle fibers, stickles, pop dots, 2 pennies, red ribbon, stitch stamp (CTMH), Hula Anya, my computer and copic markers.

Well, regardless if Anya can hula dance or not, she's can do a good job faking it that's for sure!  JOURNEYING off into the sunset!
