I Love Green, Don't Ask Me Why!

Hello! I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but I work with children who have special needs and we do a lot of learning through song. One song we sing on a regular basis is called I Love Colors. The verse for green always makes me hungry:

Green is the color of grass and trees,
Green like peas and broccoli.
Green is the color of a key lime pie.
I love green, don't ask me why!

It gets stuck in your head. Oh, and I don't eat grass and trees, I just love veggies and key lime pie! ;D So...anyway, what does this have to do with the card in this post? Read on!

I am so glad to get to practice my steampunk style again this week with Make My Monday! This week the challenge was to make a steampunk project with a monochrome color scheme. So, I chose green! (Oh, THAT'S how it works in!) ;D And I have to say, the results are YUMMY!

Here is the card~


I used a bunch of different stamps to create the background on top of the already glittery fun paper. Can you even tell?! That's where the steampunk images are mainly...oh, well. Let's look at some other aspects of the card!

Some details~


The clock~


Thanks so much, ladies, for another fun challenge! I am excited for next week! I hope that my little post inspires you to find inspiration everywhere! (Is that redundant?!) Happy steampunking!
