control freaks swap - flat and fabulous

Happy Memorial Day to all of my American friends!

I have a quick card to share with you today. This is the card I created for my first swap with the Control Freaks a couple of months ago. Not sure how I missed sharing it with you all, but here it is better late than never! I just mailed off my 2nd swap last week, so I'll be sure to share that one a little sooner...especially because it was a swap using catalog preview goodies! The theme for this swap was "Flat and Fabulous". We were asked to not use anything that was too bulky to mail, such as buttons, ribbon with bows or knots, etc. We wanted to have samples to show our customers that not every card needs extra postage! ;) Small rhinestones and pearls were on the OK list! I can't remember exactly how many swaps I created for this one, but I think it was around 25. I wish I would have taken a picture of the "steps" I took to create this card, but I was just too busy trying to get er done. Ha!

This card is so lively! It certainly does not look "flat"!
