Catalog Color Scheme #2

Last week I posted a card I made after seeing a bedding ensemble color scheme I liked in a catalog. Well there was another color scheme I liked in that catalog and here is the card I made from it. Again, a simple layout, letting the image and DP take the stage.

Whiff of Joy's Willow is colored with my Copics and nestled on frames cut from my Nesties. The DP is the charming DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies. The charm says "Imagine". I chose it because I think Willow looks a bit wistful here, as if lost in her imagination.

This is the bedding ensemble from the Penneys catalog. I love the mix of colors here.

And here is Willow's close up.
Don't forget to browse through those catalogs before tossing them into the recycle bin! They are full of inspiration!
Be sure to come back tomorrow! I will be showcasing a gem from my adorable friend Carolyn, who I compare to a rare champagne because she is "classy, bubbly and has very good taste!"
I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Terrific idea Barb! I'm so often stuck on color combos. You do the most beautiful work with your Copics! I hope to get some for my b-day later this month. Can I come for a visit so you can show me how to use them? xxD
