A step away from Christmas with an ATC

It's another challenge over at the Smudgy Antics blog. This week it's to create something that is inspired by either a book, poem or film.
You probably wouldn't believe the thought processes that led to this theme. I'll tell you anyway.
First off a pic of the ATC.....

I'm not going to spill what book/film this is meant to depict just yet. Anyone guess yet?
As I was saying, I need to make some sort of label/tag for a couple of jars that contain crystallised orange peel. I also wanted to make it kinda steampunk-ish.
Then this book/film came into my head and would not leave. The subject/content of the film is not suited very well to being part of a gift though. So I went with a seperate ATC to get it all out of my system.
The back of the ATC is orange handmade paper, then a music background stamp on card that was well distressed with orange DI. The steampunk triangle is from a Moonlight Journey sheet.
a couple of watch parts attached. The top layer is a Smeared Ink digi stamp printed onto acetate and attached with a brad just where one of the notes is printed.

Anyone guess yet?

A Clockwork Orange

I am entering this into the challenge over at
