Orange is the new black....

I've yet to see that show. (I only have basic cable - no Showtime or HBO). Guess I'll have to Netflix it sometime.

And now, the segway into my card, in which I based the colors from Color Throwdown #300:

 Here's the inside:

and the colors:

Now, as I look at this picture, the baja breeze color looks more greenish than when I was looking at it last night. Oh, well. :P All paper used on this card came from my s-crap bin. YAY! I even used some hoarded ribbon! The twine came from a stamp purchase and was tied around the stamps. I NEVER through away the free bits of twine, because I just know I'll use it at some point! And here you go!

So, there you have it. Thanks for stopping in for a visit, and I hope you have a great day! Stay crafty my friends!

Stamps: Botanicals 1; Happy Birthday
Ink: Memento - Tangelo, Paris Dusk
DP & CS: scraps
Accessories: KI Memories - ribbon; EK Success - Deco Scallop punch; twine from stash
Adhesives: SA by 3L - MyStik permanent, 3D foam squares; Recollections - red tape
