Sweet Pea Stamps Design Card Contest

Hi there!
Really? My second blogpost today? Yey! I've got one day off from work, and I've unpacked all my scrapstash so I just couldn't wait to start coloring images again!!! :)
This card, I've made for the Card Designing Superstar contest at the Sweet Pea Stamps blog. I've been using a stamp by Elaine Cox, named Miranda. I love this stamp, along with so many other of the Sweet Pea Stamps. I've already spent way to much money on their amazing stamps, but I just can't resist them! And they are so much fun coloring up :) Which actually tells me that I would LOOOVE to win a $50 gift voucher from their amazing store!! Ha ha! ;o)
For the ones that love the Elisabeth Bell arts: Sweet Pea Stamps have 9 EB design stamps in their store (I've got 3 but I want the 6 next too... lol )
This card also goes to this week's challenge at Flutter By Wednesday's, where they have an open challenge :)
Well, enough writing, here are some pictures:

Gorgeous Miranda

Size: 6" x 6"
Ink: Archival Ink Coffee, Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Papers: Basic Grey (?) Altered kraft carton. Brown carton from Ursus.  
Others: Adage ticket from Tim Holtz. White pearls are cut from a Say It in Pearls white swirl from Prima. Halfpearls from Kort og Godt. Wooden butterfly from Nille, paper butterfly from Karen Marie Klip. Laces and flowers unknown. Leaf gold.
Techniques: Image is colored with distress reinkers. The edges are scraped before inking with Distress Ink. Leaf gold are added with decoupage glue and a brush.

Yikes, it pisses me off that I don't know the name of the dp's! They are so lovely! I always take good care of the paper producent and name, but now I just can't find it!!! :( I would love it if someone could tell me, I'm pretty sure that they're from Basic Grey....?!
Well well, now I have some beds to fix, we're having visitors this weekend - a mother and her 5 kids :) So we're going to be 8 kids and three adults in the house all weekend (I'm NOT washing the house until Sunday! lol )
Wishing you all a great weekend - and remember to take care of the ones you love!!!!
