Vintage Santa

Good evening my crafty friends!
I am here to share a card I made for FF's challenge. The challenge(FFC10) is about creating any vintage holiday projects.
Oh! ladies, "vintage" is not so close to my craft style.
I haven't been familiar with any vintage themes since I was aware of my cardmaking style as either Clean And Simple or Clean and Graphical.
So it is...tough for me for this time but I came up with this card anyway.
I tried to keep the look as simple as possible sticking around my CAS style but not to lose some points of vintage mood. What are those points?
To give vintage effect, I chose a vintage Santa stamp from Paper Artsy and stamped it on  a aged look pattern paper. Then I colored the image with some brown copic markers. I trimmed the patterned paper into a panel and glued it to a textured brown cardbase. As a finishing touch, I used the technique "inking the edge" with a gold DecoColor Paint Maker
I brushed the tip randomly around the brown cardbase and the panel. It looked amazing and seemed to add more interest to my card.     

Can I say that I would add one more style in my cardmaking, which is SAV: simple and vintage? What do you think? 
Thanks for visiting my blog.
