Crazy for Cupcakes and The Friday Mashup

This week on the Friday Mashup the ladies gave us a color challenge of  using Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate, and Basic Gray.  Or we could make a card with cake.  Or we could mash-it-up and make card in those colors and a cake.

This is what I came up with.  I saw a card with the window in the front.  I really liked that style.  I made one other card with a larger opening, but this time I used a smaller opening to match better with the size of the stamp.  I also cut out a cabana colored frame around the opening.

Across the front I have a curry strip with the message "Happy Birthday" across the front in the cabana color.

Inside, I added a white panel with the stand of cupcakes in the center.  I colored the cupcakes in cabana and curry cherries (I figured they're the Mt. Rainier cherries!) The bases are colored in Crumb Cake.
Here's a view of the inside.

I think it's quite charming.

Thanks for looking!

What a great idea to have the sentiment strip across the window, with the cupcakes peeking out from behind! Thanks for playing along with the Friday Mashup this week!
