It's Oscar Night !!

I won't keep you long here today! Since it's Oscar night (details here) , I am sharing a fun dress card!! This is likely something that I would wear if I EVER wear it on the red carpet.... (LOL)!
sew what's new?
I used the Sew Artsy Set for the entire card. The top part of the dress is from two pieces of shiny ribbons and the "skirt" is made with silver paper. Add gems--voila!
I wonder which movie is going to win the Best Picture award!? I saw King's Speech and it's likely the winner! Hello, Colin!.... Look here!....I think he likes my dress :)
edited note: I'm home from Florida (arriving 3AM!!). My family and I had a FABULOUS time meeting Lin and her DH Denny. I also got to meet our new blog friend Savannah! I hope to share photos soon some time next week. I guess in Disney World, dreams do come true, as they say!

I love how you "dressed up" the dress form...so chic! I saw "The King's Speech" and loved it, got my fingers crossed for all of it's nominees.
So happy that you finally met with Lin and Savannah, and in such a magical place too, sounds perfect!
