Helping hand

   This is a stamp that I have had for some time but have never got around to using it, but I thought it would suit a friend who does a lot of knitting.
   I matted and layered amethyst and grey spotted paper onto amethyst core'dinations cardstock and white card. I then wrapped two rows of grey ribbon round grey spotted paper and attached this to the lower half of the card.
   The image from Joanna Sheen's House Mouse Designs Mice and Crafty set of stamps was coloured using Promarkers but using a silver gel pen to colour the knitting needles. This was then matted onto amethyst mirri card.
   The sentiment was also matted onto amethyst mirri card which had been cut out using a petite scalloped Spellbinders die. I glued clear gems to the sentiment and amethyst gems to the lower ribbon and finally added some glitter to some of the balls of yarn.

   I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
   House Mouse and Friends - amethyst, white and grey
   Creative Fingers - anything goes + optional more than 1 layer
   Addicted to Stamps and More - make your mark
   Animal Friends - dots
   Scribble and scrap - anything goes
   Lacy Sunshine - lots of layers
   Challenge 4 Everybody - anything goes
   Digi Designs - tic tac toe (gems, die cut, ribbon)
   Crafty Ribbons - ribbon and bow
   Eureka Stamps - animal friends
