365 Cards - #145 - Ad Inspired

It was a hard one over at 365 Cards today!! The challenge was Ad Inspired and the ad is the pic below which is a cushion with colours of orange, white, green and the butterflies. Man oh man was I struggling with it and Pam said she was going to give us a break today from the hard ones Haha I laugh at such craziness! I really had problems with this challenge and nearly decided to give it away but I perservered with it but I don't like the finished card but I was not going to re-do it.
I used an old set of SU designer paper for the orange and the green piece of patterned paper I only purchased today lol as was the rub-ons as well. There are butterflies on the card but they are a part of the pattern on the orange designer paper hehe. Okay so I procrastinate what can I say. . .

Now no nasty comments about my card okay because I know it's bad lol. That is it for me.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: Amazing Creations white cardstock. SU Designer paper. Unknown brand of green designer paper and rub-on. SU Green Galore stamp pad and sponge dauber. SU Always stamp set. Orange ribbon from stash.
