C & S class - Day 4

The Day 4 technique in our Clean and Simple card class was tone-on-tone cards.  I attempted to make a male card, using Steam Punk gears and brown colors.  After working on it, I decided it was booooring!! Here's what it looked like halfway through:

I decided to make another card entirely, using a herringbone technique from SplitCoast Stampers: Herringbone.  I salvaged two of the gears from my failed card above and used up plenty of scraps putting the strips of paper on the card.  I embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment with Antique Gold embossing powder (Martha Stewart).  The paper I used is from Graphic 45.

Here's my result:

I'm submitting this card for the FCCB Challenge #93 - Man Time.  Tomorrow I'll try another technique - I've learned so many this week.

Thanks for looking!
