Bitten By The Bug 2--Pineapple

I'm finally back.....I took a two week break from Bitten By The Bug and creating in general... but I'm back! Do I have a reason why I took a break...
LIFE.... got in my way again.
This week was Karen's turn to pick the challenge. She chose the pineapple from the Wall Decor Cricut Cartridge on page 42. I had a few ideas for this one, but finally came up with a birthday card. Remember please go back to BBTB2 and see all the wonderful creations the Design Team made and then play along in the challenge with us.
Why use a hula dancer and put the pineapple in her hands??? I have absolutely NO idea. I guess just wishful thinking that I was in Hawaii! 
I actually finished the inside too!!

Cricut Cartridges Used
Wall Decor and More = Pineapple @ 1.75
Lacy Labels = Background scallop piece @ 3.98 and 4.14
