A Fan of Handmade

My favorite part of making a card is sending it to someone I care about.  There are six ladies who I worked with for several years who are enjoying their fall in a new way.  They are not returning to their classrooms.  I made this tribute card to celebrate how I'm a fan of theirs.

The main image is a fan created by priscillastyles.     It is one from CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenges.  It's been colored with colored pencils.  Behind the image you can see I made my own background paper too featuring a piece of Cherry Cobbler  paper stamped with a rose image from Unity's June set using Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink and the Sizzix Flourish Texture plate, it's subtle but a handmade touch.  The top gingham paper is DCWV from the Kitchen collection. 

I've started collecting and using digi images and have a new challenge, how to store them. Any ideas?

Thanks for looking.
