CDS Sneak Peek -"Teeny Stego Chocolate Bar Gift Wrapper"

It is that time again...Clear Dollar Stamps sneak peeks! I love it when I get to show you everything I have been working on all month!
Lori @ CDS sent us a lot of tiny stamps and asked that we try to do something quick and simple with them. For me, that is a real challenge! LOL! I did it though and had fun!
This candy bar wrapper is done with the "Teeny Stego" stamp, illustrated by Laurie Wilson. This cute little stamp is only going to be $1.49!!!! It will be available for sale December 1st @ Clear Dollar Stamps.

I know there are a lot of you who need to come up with little gifts for lots of people. This is a great way to do it. Buy any chocolate bar and make a wrapper for it. The receiver will have "something to roar about!"
I am entering this piece in:
Creative Card Crew Challenge - "Favorite Things"
My fave color is green and my fave projects have CHOCOLATE inside! LOL!  ;)
I can't win because I am going to be a DT with CBCB again after the holidays, but I wanted to play along!
The dino and the grass have glitter and I used a CB folder for texture on the orange.
