Stampin' Up! Top Note Die and I create a stamp-less card!

Ok, so you guys know by now I have a huge stamp addiction yes? Well, I've been eyeing off the UnstampaBelles challenge for a few weeks now, and finally had an idea I wanted to play with...
Ok, so this is a fairly basic card, but I have to ease myself in to cards with out stamps... I have used the Top Note Die on the top section, in My Minds Eye paper, and some Basic Black card. I then layered it onto some White and added some faux stitching. I placed some rhinestone flourishes and then using a little birdy chipboard, traced it onto some Tangerine Tango Designer Series Paper and cut him out. I used some dimensionals to stick him to the image panel, and then mounted the whole kit and caboodle on to a Basic Grey card base... 
This card not only fits the UnstampaBelles challenge of Autumn and stitching (I was inspired by autumn colours), it also follows the sketch from The Stamp Spot, and the colours from ColourQ.
Thanks for dropping by!
I have a regular stamped card to show you too, come back later! :)

Hi there Jess, this card is lovely. I like how you have used the top note shape at the top. Great layout and with the stitching around the edges you will get a bonus entry in the prize draw. Thanks for joining in at Unstampabelles. :-)
