It's time for more inspiration from I {Heart} Sketches courtesy of From the Heart Stamps
Here is our sketch with optional twist for this week's challenge:
For my card, I went with the sketch as drawn, but expanding the focal image box a bit to accommodate this brand new fun image 'Five Party Birds'.  The extra twist is Watercoloring; after I finished the card I wished I'd tried some of the fun backgrounds techniques I've admired on other crafting blogs!

2)  Mod Squad Challenge:  The Wing's the Thing

For my card, I used the sketch as is, obsessing over the triangles.  I think I'm more a straight line kind of gal because I had to cut the DP several times to get even close to the right slope!  The twist is to use your favorite technique which in my case is lack of techniques, otherwise known as Clean and Simple.
Now head over to Jo Edward's and admire her creation!
