Christmas in July Invitation

I bought a variety of Christmas frame cards at Michael's last year (8 for $1.)
The party colors are aqua, silver and white. (this blue isn't the right shade, but it fits the winter wonderland theme and the candy cane ones are totally the wrong color... but they still made a cute invitation).
So... in the middle of the frame... rather than a photo is this poem that I made up this afternoon, printed onto glossy photo paper and inserted into the frame. I used Adobe photoshop elements to change one of the pictures (both have a cactus with Christmas lights strung on it) to a black and white photo. The other I left in color. Both have ' Merry Christmas in July' in deep red script over the photo.

'Twas the night before Christmas in July, you know.
Down south in Nevada, without any snow.

Asleep in their bed were Jeff and Maggie,
Dreamin' of a dinner party that wasn’t gonna be tacky .

Not stockings, but flip flops, at the foot of their bed,
For this was July, what more need be said,

Straight to the point, you’ve waited long enough,
Here is the scoop without all the fluff….

The dinner is Friday, July 31st at half past six
At XXXX Ave. come get your holiday fix!

Please bring your family’s favorite Christmas side dish to share.
You’ll meet many couples, Hope to see you there!
