UmWowStudio August sketch challenge

The following card is a birthday card for my youngest son.  His favorite color is bright green, so the card base and cupcake "paper" are green.  I also wanted to follow the UmWowStudio August sketch, so the majority of the card is black with light accents.  Here's the sketch, and below is my card.   I just love the UmWow chippies!  I've used the star confetti (painted white) and regular star chippies painted with black gesso then dipped in black glitter.  The black background is stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder using a collection of sentiment stamps.  I then stamped on top of that with flourish stamps and embossed them with green distress embossing powder and clear embossing powder.  (I'm not the greatest at splattering with paint/ink, so I used flourishes instead.) The cupcake embellishment is from a card stock kit - I just painted it with glossy accents.  
Thanks for taking a look!
