Avery Elle May Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Avery Elle May Release Blog Hop!  I'm so excited to be joining this fabulous group of designers on the team for the month!  My card was chosen last month in their monthly card challenge to be the Guest Designer for May.  You can see my card HERE.  Thank you Jamie for letting me join in this month with your team!
 
 
I am sharing a card made using one of the newest sets to hit the Avery Elle store.....Cupcakes!  I used the images to do some simple paper piecing using some awesome new paper from MME:  Cambridge Court.  I am a pink girl at heart and this collection just speaks to me!  Love the muted pinks and aquas! 
 
 Cupcake #1
 
TIP:  I wanted to share that I originally used a pink tipped Dritz stick pin but it just didn't look right.  So I cut off the tip and added my own tip using one of the enamel dots from the matching collection!  I think it gave my card a more finished look.
 
Now, are you ready to continue with the blog hop?  Here is the list:
