Knitty Kitty : Labrador Massage – Chill

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #393 that starts today.
I have used a digi image from Knitty Kitty called Labrador Massage – digi No. 8.

The theme for this challenge is anything goes with an optional theme of Cats, but you must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.
