Black and two greys ...

This is my 100th post!!  I guess that it should be something outstanding or earth shattering but I'm afraid not, it's just another card based episode in my crafting life!

It was back to work today after the Easter break - so it's back to crafting in the evening and at weekends.  I did have an idea for a card developing in my mind over lunch so decided to give it a go this evening.  What do you think:

These cog dies seem to be my go to resource for masculine cards!!
These are not brilliant photographs - I used two shades of grey plus black.  I need to sort out my set up for taking photographs and/or replace my camera - maybe I'll wander around the internet to see if there are tutorials or blogs about good photography!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:

CAS - Colours and Sketches

TIME OUT Challenges - Happy Birthday with the optional twist of masculine card.
