Another great summery and cheery card. The colours on this are amazing. The paper-piecing on the towel looks brill, and she is such a great image. The paper looks to have loads of texture.

I have done that before now with my blender - and picked up grey! tut :) My black PM is stored elsewhere now as it gets used for other things too ;)
