Canada: "Christmas Animals" Souvenir Sheet Official First Day Cover

This nice FDC arrived some days ago. On the Sheet you can see three classic Canadian animals dress up with droll holiday cheer. A majestic bull moose wearing a red scarf and striped toque graces the permanent domestic stamp. On the U.S.-rate stamp, a grinning beaver in a flannel shirt and flat cap playfully sports a sprig of holly in his mouth. On the international-rate stamp, a polar bear braces for the cold with a stylish cap, scarf and sweater. A clothing detail extends beyond the frame of each stamp, adding a three-dimensional touch.

It arrived safely in a cover with nice stamps:

2x Beneficial Insects (from a set of 5) - Issued: 12-10-2007
2x Baby Wildlife (from a set of 5) - Issued: 31-03-2014

Many thanks again to Tristan for this nice FDC!
