Control Freaks Spring Swap Card

Happy New Year everyone!! My 2012 year went by so fast that I pray I may enjoy each day as it comes in this new year. I really don't want to wish it all away. I don't really make resolutions because I never seem to keep them. I just want to keep doing what makes me happy and enjoy being with my family! I stayed awake long enough to see the new year in and then we came home. So thankful that we could sleep in this morning! Now I am looking forward to the Rose Parade and the Rose Bowl football game. No real plans. Just time relaxing with family!!

Today's card is one that I did for the Control Freaks Spring mini catalog swap. I just got them all back yesterday and figured it was safe to show you all. I just love this set and had fun making this card! I took a piece of Very Vanilla and ran it through the Big Shot with the Honeycomb embossing folder and adhered it to a piece of Primrose Petals and then to a card base of Very Vanilla. Then I stamped the oval image from Oh, Hello in Primrose Petals onto Primrose Petals and cut it out using the Ovals Collection framelits dies. This is adhered to the card. Then I stamped the greeting in Gumball Green onto Very Vanilla. I adhered a piece of Print Poetry designer paper to the bottom of this piece and tied some Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon around it. This is adhered to a piece of Gumball Green and then popped up onto the card. I stamped the flower using Primrose Petals and Gumball Green markers onto Very Vanilla and cut it out. This is popped up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and here's to a super New Year!!
