Hi everyone,

It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. Our challenge hostess for the month, Maryann Einam continues to issue the challenges.

Apparently today is National Blueberry Cheesecake day, who knew but it sounds yummy so make a card with this theme in mind.

For my card today I pulled out one of my Alota Rubber Stamps images, this stamp is perfect for this challenge with all those blueberries in their basket. I guess they are thinking about baking a Blueberry Cheesecake right!

For the base of my card I used the Hanging Charm Pull Tab die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I substituted the frame that comes in the die set,  for the Stitched Ovals and Dotted Scallop Ovals.

Here is another view of my card, this time at an angle soo you can see the pull tab in action.

And the card when it is closed ready to be popped in an envelope.

And finally the back of my card where I added another sentiment.
