Challenge 256 - CASE the Designer Sarah Gray

  Hello Friends of Time Out. Welcome back!

We have a special challenge the next fortnight: Instead of our regular 'Inspired by a Photo' we have a 'CASE the Designer' challenge for you this time! 

We are very very happy to have a card from Sarah Gray for us to CASE. Sarah is these days best known for her wonderful UK based company, Funky Fossil Designs. Several years ago Sarah was also one of Time Out's DT members too so it's especially wonderful to have her back with an inspiring card for us. 

If the word "CASE" is nor familiar to you, it means "copy and share everything". When you CASE someone's card, you have the designer's permission to be heavily inspired and influenced by her card... However the idea is not to completely recreate the card but to be inspired by it. 

Here's a closer look of the card Sarah has made for us to CASE. You could for example CASE the layout of the card, be inspired by of the theme of Sarah's card, use her colors or similar style or images... Many possibilities! 

Our wonderful sponsor is Sarah's own company,  Funky Fossil Designs.   They're generously offering a £25.00 store credit.

We are joined by Carol McFarland of Saw it. Had to Make It., and winner of Time Out #253 as Guest Designer. Here is what Carol has to say about her craft:

"I spend a lot of my free time either looking at card ideas or making something new because it caught my eye. I spend a lot of time on Instagram being inspired by the cardmakers I follow, as well as Pinterest looking for more ideas and ways to use my crafting stash. This hobby has the added benefit of making friends from all over who share the love of crafting!"

Here is Carol's fabulous CASE of Sarah's card: 

You can check out Carol's card on her blog HERE. Please go for a visit and leave her some love. She is a wonderful designer and you are sure to be inspired by her work!
