Snow princess

I do have to admit this My Besties image is adorably winter, but she doesn't look as if she's quite warm enough.  I've chosen to break out of the typical winter "blues" and color her up in purple (surprise, I didn't go with my favorite of pink).  She's colored with prisma pencils, and I've applied stickles to her lacy underskirt, as well as her collar and cuffs.   The mesh behind her is drywall tape, if you can make it out.   I've added oval gems to the corner diecuts.  The flower foliage was also done with diecuts - the flourishes, as well as the ferns.   Tiny white pearls were added at random around the image.
