Whimsy Stamps April release review with Sweet Little Donkey

Hi Everybody!!!

As promissed today I'm back with a project i did with Sweet Little Donkey by Meljen's Designs. I have loved this cute little creature ever since I first saw him and I'm so glad i finally got around to using him.
 This is actually a clear heartshaped box that All That Scraps used to sell, I was very sorry to see yesterday when I tried to order myself a few more that they no longer have them in store. The paper is an oldie by Basic Grey and all the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The lace, the tag and the cardboard were in the package from Tiet's clubday I spoke about earlier. This box in fact is going to one of the ladies participating this day who got into a trainaccident on her way home. Though you can probably say she is lucky she is still in a lot of pain and under stress because of the accident so I thought this would maybe cheer her up a little.
This is a close up of the little donkey, as always colored with Copic Markers, 3D paper pieced and I've added some stickles here and there.
A side view of the box with the label that's stuck under the image.
The little pieces :) The cheek is actually missing in the picture, I had to do that again because I lost that little piece somehow.
And the back of the box with my personal stamp that I love so much. I always stamp it twice, once on my coloring paper and once on matching Design Paper, this way I can cut out the heart and have everything match... such a perfect finish!! You can buy yours HERE. The box is filled with "framboosjes" traditional Dutch raspberry flavoured candy. Hope she likes them :) and hope you like my project of course!!! On the Whimsy Stamps blog there is more inspiration from the team with the April release. Enjoy!!

I'd like to enter this box into the current challenge at Paper Sundaes which is Ribbon and pearls
