Whimsy Inspires - February Challenge

Good morning!
It's the 3rd Wednesday of the month, time for the monthly Whimsy Stamps challenge. This month the theme is anything goes, so come play along for a chance to win a Whimsy prize.

When I shared this cute little goody bag I made for my daughter a little while ago, I mentioned that I would be making a boy version too. Here it is using Whimsy's new "Frog Prince" stamp. I made this one for my son and filled it with some goodies.
 

The image has been colored using copic markers and Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.  The two hearts in the "sky" part are from the Whimsy stamp set "All you need is love" from an older release. When I was taking this photo, I was still playing with the thought of adding the die cut "Love" to the bag, but in the end I left it off. The love die is also from Whimsy, and  I also used one of Whimsy's stitched border dies for the hill behind the frog. The grass in front has been simply cut using scissors.
The goody bag instructions can be found HERE on Splitcoast Stampers. If you ever need a little treat bag, this one is super easy to make. Of course mine took a little longer because of the colored image, fussy cutting, etc, but the basic instructions are really quick and easy.
