My Sweet Scraps Saying "Merry Christmas"

One thing I enjoy is “using whatever is at hand”.
I keep all my scraps and have from day one.
I punch out flowers, circles, hearts and little stars, to save in Ziploc bags or little stackable clear containers.
My friend Sharon thinks I am nine cents short of a dime. ( in a good way)
Imagine my excitement when I saw this challenge?
I prayed for wisdom and I saw a cooked plated Salmon, covered with slices of cucumber.
So away I went, adhering circles from the bottom left, to the top right corner. These are what I had.
 I was tempted to cut a few more but I prefer to follow instructions.
The sheet music is Amazing Grace.

"For it is by grace you and I have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do " (Eph. :8, 9).
