Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge: Color

Orange Zest and Kraft are the colors I chose for my June Papertrey Ink Blog Hop card, wherein we were challenged to use "color". Orange Zest is a color I've never used before, but I was inspired to try it because of Dawn's Dotty Biscotti paper. Interestingly, her blog today featured crafting with cork, which I'd decided to add in as a compliment to the Kraft & Orange Zest because I still had a piece on my table from a recent masculine card I'd made.
Paper: PTI's Orange Zest & Kraft CS & Dotty Biscotti DP; cork from stash
Stamps: PTI's Round and Round (Limited Edition 2009 Anniversary set)
Ink: VersaColor: Orange Pigment; PTI's Chai
Embellishments: WeRMemoryKeepers' Eyelets; wood buttons & twine (colored with Copic YR09)
Tools: PTI's Ric-Rac & Mat Stack 1 Dies; Spellbinders' Round dies; WeRMemoryKeepers' Crop-a-dile
