Santa Is Coming

Hello!  The focus of this card is a digital Image of Santa that I had saved in my files but do not know the source.  After printing the image, I distressed the edges with a distress tool and ink.  I assembled the card following the sketch from Sketch Saturday beginning with a card base of light gold CS, a layer of Green Pattern Paper and stripes of 2 other patterns, all patterns from Crate Paper Peppermint and Snowy Day pads.  Added a sprig of holly (stamped with Flourishes Stamp and fussy cut) on top of a bit of pine bough ( Impression Obsession die cut) when I attached the image.  I added some twinkle in Santa's eyes with Wink of Stella.   Maybe you can see it if you enlarge the photo.

I wish I knew the source of this Santa image. Does anyone know?
I always try to include the name of the origin in my file but not this one.
I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
