Inspired By Industrial Charm no 22 challenge card two

strong geometric patterns, lines, and deep dark colors

Design note about the theme: I wanted to support the theme with the scraps of different patterned papers and some additional blueberry cardstock at each corner to look like a builder's stack of lumber just fell and went every which way it could.

This is the photo to get INSPIRED BY from Laurel Seabrook Designs blog.

Design note 2: Guess what my secret mystery supply is on this card cover?

Answer: The center focal piece is--a coaster! Yes! Who knew!?!?! As soon as I saw the 4 pack of coasters for 98 cents, I envisioned using 1 or 2 this summer for graduation or promotion cards.

Watch for the next blog post where I alter the coaster for the next clean-and-simple version of this one.

Still crafting in the USA heartland, Becca S
