RIC10, CCC189 and SSS: Gettin' Inky

I made another card originally inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge.
I decided to play with my distress inks to create the background.  
I started with a piece of white paper, added a layer of Antique Linen, followed by Spiced Marmalade, and a splash of Pumice.  
After that, I kept adding the orange until I got the brightness I wanted... which was a lot of ink! 
I stamped the subtle chevron on the side with London Fog

I wanted to add a bit of cheer to the card and went with a piece of EP polka dot paper for my tissue box and some felt for texture.   
I pulled the gold from the photo to the card with the gold brads.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Runway Inspired #10: see photo
 Cupcake Craft Challenge #189: Material Girl (I used felt on the tissue box)

Thank you so much for stopping by,

This is such a fun card, too, Kelly! Love how you've embraced the orange, and the box of kleenex is just too cute!
