The Character Cafe 3, 2, 1 Challenge

I'm hosting this week's Feature Friday Challenge at The Character Cafe and the challenge is a bit of a "blast off" recipe.  

This week we want to see:

 - 3 Gems
 - 2 Brads
   - 1 Flower
                 - The Color Orange

So pop on over to see what's cookin' in The Character Cafe store, and then head back to the challenge blog and show us what you've got!  You could be this week's winner!

I think this stamp is so cute.  It looks to me like he's in a sugar coma (it makes me think of an overload of cookie dough from the wooden spoon in his hand).  I know that my dp and it's background look reddish in the photo, but it's actually a deep rusty orange color.  I inked the edges of all the paper and then glittered the edge of my green paper (obviously, right?

Also entered in the following challenges:

E.A.D Designs:  color challenge

Tuesday Throwdown:  anything goes
City Crafter:  Rome (a vintage feel)
Tuesday Taggers:  Nursery Rhyme (is 'Twas The Night Before Christmas a nursery rhyme?)
