A Card for Mo's Challenge - "3 Punches"

Good Morning Ladies, hope that you are all fit and well and that the weather is dry with you, it was here yesterday but very dull I dont mind that as long as it doesnt start raining. Todays card has been created for this weeks Mo's Challenge "3 Punches" and Ive used this sweet image of these children hanging up their Stockings on the fireplace you will find it here I sincerely hope that they arnt leaning across a fire thats alight or they could be in a dangerous situation, I know Ive always kept a fireguard in front of any fireplace I had while the children were little.
Anyway Ive printed it onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, I then cut it out with the square Nestabilitie die, now Ive got to own up that its not quite square, I know I put it square in the cuttlebug but I think it must have moved when I ran it through it, so please forgive me for that, I didnt want to waste the image so Ive used it for this card, I also cut a eyelet square for the mount out of red card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of red card with again two papers from the beautiful "Christmas Dreams" from Donnas new Digi Papers I love these papers they are really so pretty, and the first one is a red one with the flower spray on the left hand side, down the middle I have used a sentiment one and used the Hollyedge Martha Stewart border punch down both sides, and then across the bottom I have stuck a white ribbon with a sentiment on.
I then positioned the mounted image in the middle and at the top Ive put a spray of white and red poinsettas and some punched out holly leaves that Ive used a ball tool on to mark the veins of the leaves these were stuck at the top on the right with some silicone glue. To finish of Ive used four punched out snowflakes and created two mounted ones and some crushed glass glue and these were stuck at the bottom on the left hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Lovely card, I love the little dog with his own stocking. I notice you often do 7x7 cards, is there a reason for that? Do you find it easy to get backing papers to fit?
