a christmas wreath

I know that Christmas has been and gone, but some of us like to scrap our pictures after the mad rush of the festive season. So armed with the beautiful kaisercraft home for Christmas patterned papers and die cut holly wreath I went about creating a layout/home d├ęcor piece.
The die cut wreath is simply beautiful and I wanted this to stand out. so instead of laying card stock behind it I use a thick 12x12 acetate sheet that I cut into a circle.
I then cut my photo into a circle and cut the circles our from the warm wish wishes double sided paper, these then became my bauble's. I then fussy cut some of the poinsettias, leaves and holly leaves from the poinsettia paper and layered behind the baubles. I used a die that I had in my own stash and some glitter tape to create the stag. Then accented the leaves and the poinsettias with gold gliding wax.
Then thought how  can I display it?
so I found an old wooden trouser/skirt hanger and decorated it with the patterned papers.

I love how this turned out and its something I can pull out every Christmas. Plus the trouser hanger gives me other ways to display other layouts maybe project life layouts too.
