DV #136 Christmas in July

Our challenge at Dream Valley to day is Christmas in July and as I sit here in my room roasting inside at 26 C I am wishing that perhaps it really were.

We are sponsored by Pink Gem Designs.

DV 136 Christmas In July

My Chsristmas offering is a gift bag. I started with a plain white bag. The floral arrangment has various berries and leaves from my stash, but the poinsettia I diecut myself. The paper was a magazine freebie, and the little tree was in a pack of mdf Christmas embellishments. Cannot recall where the little string of lights came from. Sentiment is a Sue Wilson one. I added some glitter around the edge of the paper and to the tree to look like tinsel.
