Get Busy Living, or Get Busy Dying

My application is the back of a playing card because I felt the tone of my phrase was somewhat related to a game of risk in life and the style I want to convey will work nicely in that application. 

So far, here are my related words/phrases and my moodboard/inspiration.

Update June 8, 2015: finally inspired to get back at this and finish what I started.

Sketched out some thumbnails, I like one better than the rest but a few illustrative properties of another. Definitely needs some finessing and focus in the next step, but I'm learning a lot.

Did one more sketch then inked it. I am not really happy with the illustrator tracing results, so I may redo that.

Playing card mockup. Not happy with how jagged the edges are. Will redo the tracing settings when I have time. Any tips appreciated.
