Pollycraft Challenge 22, My Favourite Things

The challenge theme over at the Pollycraft challenge blog is "My Favourite Things" and since I'm currently completely enthralled by digital downloads, it seemed a natural choice.
I'm just not very good at rubber stamping, and so digital images are perfect for me. I can re-size them to suit either cards or ATCs, so no need to have seperate images for the two. And, since I can print off several copies of an image, I can decoupage most things. And, possibly best of all, I can bring up the image on my screen and make backing paper, or matting layers, or sentiments, or embellishments to match perfectly. Wooooohoooooooo for digital downloads, I love 'em! :D
This card uses the Phoebe and Maude set from Pollycraft, both the image and the backing paper are from there, and the text and matting layers were done in Paintshop. I decoupaged the image and then added seed beads to the top layer of the flower centre. You can click on the image to see it full-size. Hope you like it :)
