Control Freaks - TOUR DE FREAKS - September Blog Tour

Welcome to the September TOUR DE FREAKS!   We are featuring fall and holiday items found in the new Holiday Catalog.  There are lots of wonderful items to pick from.  You may have come from Melissa Davies blog.  Her projects are always fun to see.

I thought I would show you a basic card and then a stepped up version to show how easy it is to give your card that finished look.  Here's a basic card.  It is an okay card...

NOW... look at this stepped up card.  It is like adding frosting to the cake.  I taught this card at our September Stamp -A-Stack.
