The Cathouse Tree – Seasons Greetings

Today’s handmade card has been created for the new challenge at I Love Promarkers Blog Challenge #400 that starts today.
I have used a digi image from Ikes Art called The Cathouse Tree

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