I used an acetate photo cover to anchor "joy" and put the holly leaves cut from a Sizzix long die under the photo cover to tone them down. More of the holly is seen along the top of the piece.
I found a little paper mache gingerbread man and tore some papers to collage onto him. I love gingerbread men. :) A few buttons from my stash finish him off. It's easy using Simple Stories papers which have so many great elements in the pack. Of course everything is inked. Now, to get on with the rest of my Christmas decorating.
