DECISIONS ~ Choosing the backing ? ? ?

My Prairie Schooler's  
'Father Christmas' Ornaments... 
I am making progress as I had surgery on July 18th 
and simply had NO desire to do much 
of anything for about 3 1/2 weeks.
I am feeling back to normal and back in the saddle.
 4 are stitched, but no backing.  
Must make a decision.
Can't get started until that is made. 

 I will be using the 'envelope' method
 Marly has shown in one of her tutorial blogs. 

This will probably be my choice.
I like the rambling vine with berries design.

That looks too busy, 
but I like symmetrical designs 
and to me I see snow flakes.

Both have been stained with my 
coffee, clove, vanilla & cinnamon grungy mix.  
That is why the snow flakes pop cause the stain 
was resisted and not absorbed as it was on the 
unprinted parts of fabric.

Also, I must decide what to use for the filling.  Hmmmmm!

What say You???
