The challenge today at Dilly Beans is...

I love purple in all it's varying shades of violet, orchid, lilac,
lavender, and puce.
I just like saying "puce". 

I used Dilly Beans image #417 - Lila.
Isn't she gorgeous?! I'm sure she will be stunning no matter
what colors are used. She really pops in purple though. 

I added some white gel pen dots to her eyelashes like Megan
tends to do sometimes, on the original paintings. I broke out the
purple Stickles for the hair, used purple Distress ink for the
background, used an swirls embossing folder for the
background paper, highlighted the embossed swirls with
Firefly Stickles, and finally tied it all up with a pretty purple bow.

to see what the rest of the talented DT created for this
purple themed challenge.
Maybe even be inspired to play along with us for your chance
at winning some Dilly Bean images of your own.
