 Hi there Crafty Friends. It's time for another  Time Out Challenge. This week we want you to CASE the Designer. 

'CASE' stands for Copy And Share Everything - but it's not about just copying a card. It's about getting inspiration from card-making friends and making a new card with our own twist.  We have chosen a gorgeous rainbow card created by Gina K and look forward to seeing how you are inspired.

Now I'll be honest, I find rainbow cards challenging - I'm not sure why, but I'm never really happy with how my cards look. However, I think I worked out how to make it more pleasing to my eye! I blended the colours with Distress Oxides and added Nuvo shimmer powder and then I die-cut all the flowers and mixed them up. I love how it turned out, although maybe I used too many. 
The dies are all from Spellbinders, designed by the uber talented Yana Smakula. 
The sentiment is from Altenew One-Go Birthday Greetings. (tip: I have stamped and die-cut lots of these and keep in a tin, ready to be used).

The winner of our challenge will receive a $25 store credit from our wonderful sponsor - Gina K Designs and also be offered a Guest Design gig for a future challenge!

You can see more inspiration from the rest of our fabulous DT at the TIME OUT CHALLENGES blog. 
I hope you have the opportunity to join in our challenge.

 Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)

  8. I love your card Jenny and you have reminded me that I bought this set last September (an early birthday treat for myself) but with my trip down under, I forgot to catalogue it, stowed it and forgot I had it! When I saw your card, I went on a mad hunt for it and have started cutting and colouring! Your bouquet is gorgeous - love the shine from the Nuovo Shimmer Powder! Hugs, Kate!

  9. Your card is amazing, Jenny! It makes me especially happy because I too own these dies and used them in a card for the first time yesterday -your card has given me lots of new ideas how to use them again! The array of flowers is absolutely beautiful and the colors look so vibrant. xx
