Christmas in October

Hello, dear readers!  Am still in Christmas mode, i can't seem to stop Christmas-crafting :)  It's probably because i know there won't be any time at all for scrapping once December comes in.  And so, here's another project.  I've long ago been wanting to do this but can't seem to find any place that i could put it in the house.  Thankfully, Christmas is just around the corner and it's a good reason to hang stuff around the house :)  Here's my long-awaited banner:


I've wanted to keep it simple and yet not too simple.  This is a good "embellishing" exercise for me :)
