I've worked with 2 severe control freaks before, controlling cause of their own personal insecurities.

Only one way to make them happy, nod and agree with everything they want. Tell them their ideas are good. And a third that won't work alone but in combination with the above, suck up to them. It doesn't happen overnight and thry never love you more than others but they do relax their grip some. You are completely going against her wishes if you get someone else to approve your cards. It will make her dislike you even more.

That said, I only had the strength to do the above with one of them. The other, I reported and he completely backed off after that. This was actually by far the most effective method but only works if your company supports you over her which im not sure they would since shes in charge od your actions. They did for me because I had the support of another higher up at the time who witnessed his actions.
