For my three squares in a row I choose to go diagonal. With heat embossing, birthday theme, and watercolor. I heat embossed the succulent with Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Succulent stamp and hero arts gold embossing powder. And the sentiment is also heat embossed as well as the background words on the black panel. The birthday theme is evident in the sentiment. For the water color is used gold watercolor for the splats in gold.
I used what I learned in the Summer School session about lines to direct the flow of the content and emphasis the birthday part of the sentiment. I hope that you enjoy my card today and leave me some feedback please.
