(A bit too?) Clean and simple

I couldn't quite convince myself that I liked this having made it but hubby did and as it was destined for one of his sons (who runs and cycles, sometimes with a competitive element) we went with it. I was aiming for monochrome and graphic but I ended up thinking perhaps it was just a bit too plain!

I thought afterwards that since the bike and the pocket watch are vintage maybe I should have used sepia tones for the monochrome look rather than black and grey but I'm not sure that would have convinced me, either!

What do you think?

I think it is just right as it is, Joanne. Very good.

It looks perfect as it is. I like the variation of shades even though its monochrome

I think sepia would have made it too olde worlde for your DH's son. You say pocket watch I say stop watch which sounds perfect for a competitive runner and cyclist.I love the shadows you've made for the bike and I think it is a very effective card and not too CAS at all.

oh my god I love this card - very CAS - but it has movement - very stylish - actually love the black and grey - very striking
