Doing a Monochromatic card was very difficult for me!!  I love colors and sticking to just one was like having just one chocolate from the whole!!!
This handsome dude is from the "All Steamed Up" stamp set.  As you can see my color of choice was green!  I went through my ever growing pile of left over scraps from other projects and used those scraps for the designer papers.   I had to use a bit of "math" to have four different sizes of dp's for the background.  I distressed the edges with Peeled paint distress ink.  The Steampunk clock die is by LA-La-Land and the tags are dies by Simon Says Stamp.  The corner die is by Cuttlebug and the wheel is an MS punch.  I also used part of the Gears embossing folder for a panel behind the image.  The tag pulls out to reveal the sentiment.

I hope you can join our challenge this week!  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for taking the time to pop in!
