Vintage Father Christmas


This card is purely for Bah Humbugs Challenge#24 "Father Christmas". I love this image from Joanna Sheens Victorian Christmas CD. It suprises me still how many people are not aware that the classic red coated Santa was introduced by a popular Cola company as a sales gimmick in the late 1800's. The Background paper is from K&Co's Classic K Bailey collection.
And a quick mention that a new challenge will be starting at Cowgirls Sunday tomorrow :)
Love as always Gina x x x
