To friends old and new

I did another steampunk Christmas piece today, using the Mercius digi from Simply Betty Stamps and Technologie Fantastique papers from Crafty Chaos Designs
Here are the challenges I created it for:
Craft Your Passion - follow the sketch
One Stitch At A Time - anything goes
Order of the Opus Gluei - anything goes
Crafty Sentiments - anything goes
Rainbow Lady Challenges - make it a vintage delight
Freshly Brewed Designs - Merry Christmas
Crafts and Me - moody blues
For Fun Challenges - Christmas
Cards for Men - Christmas card for a male
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
Stamps R Us - anything goes
Karber weekly Challenges - anything goes using a digi
Pear Tree Designs - Christmas
Cupcake Craft Challenges - non-traditional Christmas
Simply Betty 12 Days of Christmas - Day 11, Skully Jolly Christmas use skulls. I went subtle for a change on this one, and decided I wanted to make a card with lots of sulls, but that weren't immediately obvious. So, they're on his chair, all around the image and on the steampunk clock embellishments down the side.
