Fortnite birthday card

This morning I was asked to make a birthday card for a young lad who likes gaming.

This is what I came up with quickly so they could get it in the post.

I printed a picture that I found online. I matt and layered the picture and the card with yellow and black card. I added white embossed card to the bottom of my card. I used a Xcut embossing folder. I printed a sentiment and die cut it with a die from a nesting set from The Works. I mounted the sentiment on black card. I added some stars that I cut with a punch.

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges:
