Cute Card Thursday ~ Recipe

This week on Cute Card Thursday we have a recipe to follow set by Lynn who
is now lying low (on holiday) as she gave us a real stinker!
Her challenge is this, take 1 thing torn, 2 papers and 4 embellishments! Hah, easy I hear you say, until you hear her catch....if you layer your flowers, each
layer, each brad has to be counted as an embellishment! This was a REAL challenge for someone like me who likes to be very liberal with embellishments!
I decided to play safe and cover a shopping jotter that I have been meaning to alter for a while. This is one of the sweet Gorjuss girls from Sugar Nellie.
I might have stretched the rules just a little, I made my flower out of my patterned paper so I didn't count it as an embellishment but I did count the rub-on! You have to be quite creative with this challenge! My 4 embellishments are the rik rak ribbon, the spacer, the brad and the rub-on.
We have a super set of stamps as a prize to give away with this challenge kindly donated from The Greeting Farm!
It is the Happy Chef set and is so cute!
Supplies: Notebook
Stamps : Sugar Nellie Gorjuss girl, Crafty Individuals letter stamp
DP : Basic Grey 'Sugared'
Embellishments : Spacer from Ebay, Heidi Swapp brad, rik rak and rub on.
