Captain Owen – Sending You Birthday Wishes

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #405 that starts today.
I have used a digi image from Paper Nest Dolls called Captain Owen

The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the option of a sentiment, but you must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.
