Laundry day

Hi everyone,  I've finally got round to using a gorgeous stamp that  Crafty Lou got me for my birthday - back in April,
I'm embarrassed to say that she's been waiting patiently until I got round to inking her up.
xXx
Thought of following my Gran's tradition of doing the laundry on a Monday,
I'm sure my crafty version is much more fun!
xXx
xXx
I have used,
Greeting Farm - Laundry
Martha Stewart - Pinking scallop, edge punch
Cosmo cricket - Material girl
SU - Tiny tag punch
Coloured with distress inks
xXx
All items available from Sir Stampalot
xXx
I'm entering this card for;
 Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Bunny Zoe's challenge - Nice & girly
Thanks for looking
Hugz

Hi Fleur

My Granny used to do the washing on Monday as well, it was quite a palaver as I remember, it took the whole day and the scary bit - the irnoing got done the same day as well.

Great card, seem to recognise those DP's.
