Dress inspiration for celebration

This is for Sketch and Stash 23:

The neglected stash was the piece of striped paper on the left - this is a piece from BG obscure (not quite sure why I bought that because it's use seems limited). The piece of scalloped BG paper is from Indian summer, a more recent acquisition.

The colours of pink, orange and green were chosen for My Grafico 25 - at first those colours don't seem to go together, but given the right papers they work.

Tuesday challenge this week is quite unusual - we were asked to go to this link and pick one of the fabulous girls dresses as an inspiration piece. I chose this girl's dress, which reminded me of one that had been taken from a card someone gave me to recycle:

It's also for:

another one for week 8 'glitz and blink' on BG
Susie's sassy's challenge 2: pink and sparkly'
Mixed Media Monday: 'I am woman'
Kaboodle 18 asks us to use 'buttons, bows and bling' - I hope I'll be forgiven that there's only one button on the bow of the dress, but there is plenty of bling!
day 159 on 365 cards was: 'setting the scene indoors' - the chandelier seems right for this.
Sweet stampin' 1: 'celebrate' (why not check this out - new challenge blog started today)

Don't forget: If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it!
