Insert this in your HTML

<link href="/bootstrap/5.3.0.css?primary=%23f26522&min-contrast-ratio=2&link-decoration=none&body-color=%2334495e" rel="stylesheet">

Elements will look like this

anchor tag My Link
.btn .btn-primary
.btn .btn-outline-primary

Other Pro Tips

You can add other paramters to the URL that would be in the _variables.scss in bootstrap. For example: &min-contrast-ratio=2
