10th day of S&S 12 days of Christmas

What a busy week ahead, those last minute preparations looming. Todays offering is an ATC. It is a reminder that up until 80 years ago, Santa looked very different. The modern day Santa, with his red suit and rotund figure, was invented by Coca Cola as an advertising ploy. Don't believe me - look it up.
So this ATC was to mark this anniversary.

It's the last scrap of the acetate sheet. Honest. (For now, hehehe hohoho)
The script with written on by hand then heat embossed on.
The image is from Stamp It Crazy last year. Coloured with promarkers then loads of DI to give it that old grungy look.

The scrap of purple with the skull is from Crafty Chaos. The gravestone is a rubber stamp, origin unknown, cut from more of the coredinations used as the base card.
As before, the list of fellow bloggers is over there on the right, please don't forget to got visit them as well.
See you wednesday for another project. Thanks for visiting
