A Card for Sunday's with Santa - "Family"

Good Afternoon All, I do hope youve all had a good week and looking forward to this weekend, unfortunately the weather doesnt look as if its going to be particularly nice, but you can always live in hope. We are still having to take our dog to the vets every couple of days, as on Wednesday we found her limping and it turned out her leg had become swollen, so now she sports not only a collar but also a bandage boot on her left back leg, weve also been told it will probably be another week before she will be able to have the stitches out, which makes it almost 3 weeks since she had her operation,  not what we were expecting.
Anyway back to the card Ive posted today, this is for this weeks Sunday's with Santa on Faceboon Challenge and this week they want a "Family" one, and I decided this sweet LOV image was quite appropriate for it, Ive stamped it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie die labels No.17 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one of the Polka Doodles Xmas stamps that I got as a freebie with one of my craft magazines.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, and the papers I have used are Nitwits "Frost n Flakes" digi paper set, the first paper is a snowflake design and I then used a sentiment paper and my large Memory Box Snowflake die and punched out two of them and stuck them to the first mount, then used a corner die from the same company and these were stuck in the two opposite corners. I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
