I love that you made this work for you a la Christmas in July!! I hopped on a Christmas in July blog hop recently and you've brought me back to all the inspiration that I found that day, thank you. I love your embossed pointsettia and your beautiful tag! What amazes me is that you were able to put your hands on a perfect Christmas tree for your staging! For me to do that, I would have to do some serious digging to get to the Christmas tubs! :>
