One layer birthday card

Hello, I wanted to be a little bit organised today and make a card that fits in with three challenges.
Firstly I went over to the Muse challenge where this weeks Muse is Tracey McNeely with this beautiful card.

I love the water coloured smooshed background and the scripty sentiment on Tracey's card and those PPP flowers are gorgeous.  I kept my card one layer so I could also enter it into The Flower Challenge.  I stamped the Happy Succulents stamp from Uniko in versamark and clear heat embossed it.  Then I used my Zig clean color real brush markers to colour in the succulents and leaves and did some ink smooshing.  My scripty sentiment is from Stampin Up Picture Perfect Birthday.  I am also entering this into the Seize the Birthday challenge where it is "anything goes".

Here's my one layer birthday card.
