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!

Hats Off to the Graduate!

Digi image and sentiment:  From the Heart Stamps 'Graduate Birdbrain'.  Cardstock:  GP110 white, Glitz 'Vintage Blue' DP.  Ink:  Copics.

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 after I adhered all my little strips of DP I realized the image was positioned a bit too high.  Although I seriously considered trimming the white space and turning it into a square care I decided to add a sentiment instead, leaving more space on the inside for a personal sentiment!
