The words we say...

I decided I would try a MoxieFab challenge with all the new sketches that are being shown from the new Go-To sketch magazine.

The sketch that I used is slightly changed. I had two different inspirations going on in my head where one sketch post talked about "stretching" a sketch by rotating and flipping it so I decided to "stretch" out the square sketch into an A6 size card to go along with my idea for the second sketch from MoxieFab here.

The cocktail dress is from InStyle Stamps. I colored the three dresses with Prismacolor Cool Grey markers (40%, 70% and a dab of 90%). I've found I love to color the skirts so I can make broad whispy strokes with my marker, LOL. I created some hangers and colored them with True Blue and Process Blue markers. All the images, even the printed sentiment, are outlined with Cream marker to match the mat behind the dresses.

I picked the colors from InStyle's Color Challenge for April here. The added elements in the sketch, well, I just completely did a boo-boo and started in on the wrong sketch, but I loved it so I kept it.
Layers and that handmade necklace embellie. Too cute! Now this is exactly when I can say, if I wasn't so sentimental about my crafting supplies and keep a ziplog bag of unfinished projects, I would not have been able to make this necklace. Some call it hoarding, some call it destiny. You choose.

Now how does the sentiment end?

 Oh, yeah...your dreams will come true.
