Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #430 that starts today.

I have used a digital image from Colour Of Love called Poppies.

The theme for this challenge is Anything Goes with the option of Using Pretty Papers.

You must use either promarkers, flexmarkers, aquamarkers or trias on your work.
