One Layer Floral Birthday Card

I have a confession to make. I struggle with one layer cards. I start making one and before I know has layers! So be amazed when you see this card, it is truly a one layer card. I used a pretty floral background stamp and stamped it with black ink. Next I stamped the sentiment with Clearsnap Razzberry pigment ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I used a pink Copic to color some of the centers of the flowers. To give it a little extra "something" I then stippled the colored centers and the edges of the card with glitter Mod Podge. The last step was making myself leave the card alone and "walk away" (because you know I wanted to add a layer)! (BIG wink.) This floral one layer card (gasp) is playing in the following challenges:
