If you look close in pic below you can see the metallic gold flecks!!!

Adorned with Kaisercraft Chanteuse paper pack, MiCrafty Butterfly and Corner Swirls Chippies, Viva Decor Iced White Pearl Pen, Metal spacers and SU Large Half Pearl for dresser knobs :)
The drawers were sponged with TH walnut stain ink and then covered with dp which was also ink distressed along the edges.

AND Here Is "Canary Love" showcased on one side of chest.  Colored with copics and prima pencils.  Diamond glaze on eyes, lips and dove's heart.  Gelly roll clear star pen gave sparkle to dove's wings and thread swirl.  Added sparkle on ruffles with Red AtYouSpica pen.  Wild Orchid Pearls for buttons on dress.  Cherry Lynn Flourish, MS butterfly,WOrchid pearls and more Viva pearl pen accented the image.

These pics show the other side of the chest.  Stamped a Stampendous saying with Memento Rich Cocoa.  Bordered by stamping the Silhouette Lace Scroll Frame from Sweet Stamps with TH tattered rose ink---  Inked edges and oval with TH peeled paint---sparkled with Viva decor holo iridescent glitter liner.  Finished with Cherry Lynn flourish and MS butterflies which were inked and pearlized.
