I have used the Penny Black "Bee Costume" stamp and Basic Grey Oh Baby! Boy Zachary paper. I have cut the circle using my creative memories circle cutter and have inked the edges (i know it did hurt me a little!). I then stitched along the edges of the black panel and attached to the circle. The image was matted onto black and then centred in the circle. I have used punches to make the little circle embellishments and finished them off with a Doodlebug sugarcoated brad and a bit of ink. The bottom circle has been highlighted with an American Crafts dotted circle rub on and Doodlebug mini rub ons for the name, finally I used a few more of the Doodlebug mini rub on letters for the greeting.

Two in One.....Basic Grey & Friday Sketchers Challenges
This is my card for the above challenges. I was so pleased when I saw there was a Basic Grey Challenge blog, I went through a bit of a Basic Grey phase about 3 years ago and I have sooooooooo much of it to use! So hopefully this new blog will give me the kick up the bum to do something with it all! It is also for the Fridays Sketchers Challenge, this is the sketch to interpret:Here is my attempt at the sketch also incorporating a Basic Grey product and some stitching for the BG challenge.
