World Cardmaking Day Fun - Market Street Stamps Block Party and Ellen Hutson Trend Challenge

Yesterday was World Cardmaking Day, and although I really didn't get a chance to create until the girls went to bed (Andrew had a meet all day and we had all sorts of stuff to do - gym, birthday party, etc.), I actually managed to get a lot done.

I'll be sharing all my creations in the next week or so, but I gotta get this one posted tonight.

I'm using Brenda Weaver's Hit The Mark set (although the 'you' is from another set). 

I wanted to get an ombre effect with the arrows/triangles, there are actually four different Spectrum Noir markers used for the triangles, but it is a lot more subtle than I planned, and really doesn't show well in the photograph at all.

I'm also going to link this up with one of Ellen Hutson's WCMD challenges - using a trendy shape. 

Hope you guys got to do some creating too....I'm still planning to get some things done for all the challenges that are still running.  Thanks for coming by!
