Such a darling image and we could use some snow right about now to cool things down a bit. The salmon and Pool party go great together. Hope you stay cool this week. We are in for a five day heat wave so I think every time I come from outside this week, I will come in my craft room to look at your card and I will cool down quickly. LOL
