Girly paper piecing

I've had this Kanban set of stamps for a while now, and these stamps haven't yet been used. I thought this dress suited paper piecing and so that is what I did, using a paper I printed from my Repro Depot cdrom book again. I used a paper for this card in the same pattern but different colour way, I had printed two, as originally I was going to use both papers on that card. Instead I have paper pieced and then cut out using the new nesties opulent ovals. The main oval is a cut from a piece of paper I used shimmer inks and a mask on sometime ago and it has been waiting for the right card to come along! The sentiment stamp is from a PB set called "wishes".
I'd like to enter the card into these challenges:-
Simon Says stamp - paper piecing
Creative Craft challenges2 - bling it up
Oldie But a goodie- glitz and glam
Creative Card Crew - girly
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT-girly/female
Moving along with the times - bling it on
