Pretty in Purple

Spring's not too far off now, with daylight saving time right around the corner so I thought Tilda would like to try on her new fancy frock with its matching parasol.  I may be getting ahead of myself since it's only early February, but our recent summer heat wave has really inspired me. I hope the nice weather lasts a while but even if it doesn't we can always re-create it with pretty images on paper.

This was a RAK for a card group friend. She let me know she received it, so it's okay to post. I colored with Copics and kept her pretty CAS. It doesn't show up here but the design on the background paper is silvery and very shiny.  Maybe one of these days I can get a new digi camera so my scanner doesn't have to do all the work.
