You probably forgot to run

sudo mktexlsr

on your Terminal, before using your class.

By the way, It would probably have been better to add your new class  
to the following folder instead


(create all necessary subfolders if they  don't exist yet)

LaTeX will then recognize your class immediatly (no need of mktexlsr).

Hope that helps,
