Penny Black at Allsorts October Challenge

This is the first time I'm playing in the Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge. The October Challenge is to use this picture as inspiration (see below).
 

Here is my take on the challenge. To create this card, I first diecut a piece of white card using Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 17. Keeping the die in place as a frame, I masked off the top part of the label and sponged the bottom with Aged Mahogany & Fired Brick Distress ink. I then masked the bottom part and sponged the top with Mustard Seed & Scattered Straw. I then stamped Penny Black 3880K fantasy with Versafine Onyx Black. A few punched sakuras & rhinestones were attached, then various colours of Stickles glitter glue applied. The finished piece was attached to a red card blank.

Here is the inspiration picture:

Also entering this in the Lily Pad Cards Simon Says Stamp Bling Challenge.
