Something New ~ Inspiration Saturday

Good Sunday morning! I know my title says Inspiration Saturday but today is Sunday. I've been wanting to start a new segment on my blog posting a card that I made that was inspired by something I've seen or by some of the incredible talent that's out there leading the stamping market. My day of choice was Saturday, but since I didn't get to post yesterday I thought I would start it today, although keeping my post day for Saturday. Make sense? ;0)
Anyway, today's card was inspired by the fabulous Kristina Werner. You can find her sweet card HERE on her BLOG.

Here's my card:

I used Simon Says Cupcake Party stamp set to create this card. My card is pretty much CASEd except that mine has a large clear acetate window allowing you to peek into the inside of the card. The window card was originally intended to be a shaker card, but my first card was a success leaving me with a second window card to do something different with.
On the inside of the card I stamped streamers from PTI's Birthday Style.

Even though this is a CASEd card, I put my own touch to it. Like any card, you can take the inspiration as far as you'd like according to your own taste. You can follow the recipe exactly, change a few things or simply use an idea as a jumping off point. Keep in mind that you cannot enter any card that is CASEd into any challenges unless it is your own work.

I enjoy Kristina's clean and simple style and her use of white space. The clean lines of this card really allow the sentiment and focal point to be the star of the show.
Thanks Kristina, for always inspiring us with your creative talents and joyful personality!
Be sure to stop back next Saturday for my next Inspiration Saturday. Thanks for visiting!
Blessings~ Birgit

Hi Birgit, I don't see your card here, did I miss something?

I see the pictures of your beautiful card now! That red and aqua color combination is one of my very favorites! I love what you did with making the window and the streamers. It reminds me of a fancy cake box!

What a sweet card. Love that clear window, and how you can peek inside to see the party banners.
